Team Tricho

Team Tricho

MIT/WHOI Joint Program graduate students Annette Hynes, Elizabeth Orchard, and Phoebe Dreux Chappell make up the trio known as “Team Tricho.” Working in the microbial biogeochemistry group at WHOI, the team investigates critical marine bacteria called Trichodesmium. Trichodesmium are cyanobacteria that fix nitrogen in nutrient-poor oceans. By studying the different species of Trichodesmium and how the bacteria obtain and use nutrients, the trio hopes to get a more detailed and global view of the ocean nitrogen cycle.
