Understanding ocean viruses may just save the earth and help cure your next ailment

Microbes are now recognized to impact human health, weight, even behavior. However, viruses that infect microbes are everywhere, and those in your body may play particularly important roles, yet remain virtually undiscovered. Sullivan shares the state of the art in studying ocean viruses and relates how that helps us understand viruses in humans, agriculture and industry.

Matthew Sullivan, Ohio State microbiology assistant professor, studies co-evolution of microbe and virus in environmental populations and impact of marine phages on microbe-mediated global biogeochemistry. Sullivan was part of the international Tara Oceans Expedition.
