Hi, I am Carina and in my PhD project I will be looking at virus-host dynamics of the marine picoeukaryote Ostreococcus sp. and how these dynamics are affected by warming. For that we will be looking at different virus host pairs from different regions of the Southern Baltic Sea and monitor the host and virus dynamics at different temperatures. In addition, I am also interested in how the combined effects of warming and virus infection affect the carbon acquisition of Ostreococcus sp. To do that, I will be measuring photosynthesis and respiration rates and look into organic carbon acquisition during different stages of the infection.
