A new study has overturned the long held view that microbes in the world’s oceans are highly mobile and the same cells can be found anywhere across the planet. Microbes evolve faster than oceans can disperse them
A new study has overturned the long held view that microbes in the world’s oceans are highly mobile and the same cells can be found anywhere across the planet, unhindered by geographic boundaries.
