The Ecology of Marine Microorganisms Research group, based at the Institute of Marine Sciences (ICM-CSIC, Barcelona), integrates scientists from different disciplines and research topics that use complementary methods to address the ecological and functional role of marine microorganisms at different resolutions: from communities to species or ecotypes.

Our current interests are summarized in the following research lines:
