UA undergraduate researcher Sarah Schwenck and postdoctoral associate Jennifer Brum are investigating phages, viruses that infect bacteria, to understand how portions of the world's oceans function without oxygen. Having taken measurements while on a research cruise to Mexico, they will sequence the DNA of the viruses and analyze how much of a role differences in viruses plays at different spots in the ocean.
