Summer Student Fellow Anna Nisi shares the results of her research on the marine microbial food chain at the end of the Summer 2013 session. The Carleton College student worked with WHOI biologist Heidi Sosik to study ciliates—common microscopic grazers—using a technique called image-in-flow cytometry. Nisi’s results shed light on the ways ciliates change with the seasons at the Martha’s Vineyard Coastal Observatory (MVCO). Applications for the 2014 SSF program are being accepted until February 15.(Photo by Tom Kleindinst, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
