Prof. Zhang Yuzhong’s Team Publishes Research Results in Nature Microbiology

On October 25, 2021, the team led by Prof. Zhang Yuzhong published an article entitled “Acrylate protects a marine bacterium from grazing by a ciliate predator” in Nature Microbiology. This research finding was enabled by the collaboration between Zhang’s team at OUC’s College of Marine Life Sciences and its counterparts at partner universities such as Shandong University.

For many years, the team has been engaged in marine microbiological and microbial oceanographic research, producing research findings in marine microorganism-driven carbon, nitrogen and sulfur cycling. Its latest research finding, published in Nature Microbiology, marks another major development in marine microbiology and microbial oceanography.
