Scientists apply biomedical technique to reveal changes within the body of the ocean
from Maritime Executive
For decades, medical researchers have sought new methods to diagnose how different types of cells and systems in the body are functioning. Now scientists have adapted an emerging biomedical technique to study the vast body of the ocean. In a study published Sept. 5 in the journal Science, a research team led by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution demonstrated that they can identify and measure proteins in the ocean, revealing how singled-celled marine organisms and ocean ecosystems are operating.
