The largest source of biodiversity is invisible to the naked eye.  Tiny microbes account for 98% of ocean biomass and produce as much oxygen as all the trees on the planet.  Join us as we delve into the secret and complex lives of ocean microbes to see how they respond to sunlight, communicate chemically, and exchange genes.

This event is part of the San Diego Wetlab’s citizen science lecture series held every first Tuesday at 6:30pm at the La Jolla Library and every third Thursday at 6:30pm at the Downtown Library.   Please check the San Diego library system events page for location details and changes in the upcoming schedule.
