Mind the gap: a systematic map of light variation in algal aquaculture allows us to identify research gaps
PhD student Belinda Comerford, under the supervision of Nick Paul and Dustin Marshall, has explored existing studies on how variation in light affects algal growth, highlighting crucial gaps in our knowledge to date.

Using the model organism Bugula neritina, more than four years of study and the deployment of over 6000 individuals, Dustin Marshall has found that mothers in higher temperatures tend to favour smaller offspring, while mothers in cooler temperatures favour larger offspring.

New work by Martino Malerba and Dustin Marshall debunks the long-held belief that the karyoplasmic ratio — the proportion of nucleus size to cell size — is approximately constant.
