MIT-WHOI Joint Program student Louie Wurch studies Aureococcus anophagefferens in the Dyhrman Phytoplankton and Marine Biogeochemistry Laboratory at WHOI. Researchers found the harmful algal bloom species has a unique gene complement that allows it to outcompete other marine phytoplankton and thrive in human-modified ecosystems.
