Ocean microbes display a hidden talent: releasing countless tiny lipid-filled sacs

In the search for a renewable energy source, systems using algae look like a good bet. Algae can grow quickly and in high concentrations in areas unsuitable for agriculture; and as they grow, they accumulate large quantities of lipids, carbon-containing ... [Published MIT News feed - Jul 07 2014]

Quotes

...According to news originating from Livermore, California , by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "Metagenomic approaches have revealed unprecedented genetic diversity within microbial communities across vast expanses of the world's oceans. Linking this genetic diversity with key metabolic and cellular activities of microbial assemblages is a fundamental challenge."
...back to the dusty time of the New Testament and imagine Jesus, a man who claimed to be the son of God, saying this to his followers on a hot day: "I'm captivated by the revelation that my breakfast feeds the 100 trillion bacteria and archaea in my colon, and that they feed me with short-chain fatty acids." Can you imagine that? No, you can't...
...amongst microbes, Prochlorococcus is special because it is incredibly tiny -- so tiny that barely 100 proteins can fit end-to-end inside the cell. "Space inside the cell is so valuable that even DNA gets compacted, stripped down to just 1,700 crucial genes" , making it one of the smallest genomes in nature...
"In this extraordinary finding on the power of natural selection, the scientists have discovered a mosaic of genetically distinct populations of one of the most abundant organisms on Earth" says George Gilchrist, program director in NSF's Division of Environmental Biology
