• Emerging interaction patterns in the Emiliania huxleyi-EhV system 

      Ruiz Martinez, Eliana; Oosterhof, Monique; Sandaa, Ruth-Anne; Larsen, Aud; Pagarete, António (Journal article, 2017-03-22)
      Viruses are thought to be fundamental in driving microbial diversity in the oceanic planktonic realm. That role and associated emerging infection patterns remain particularly elusive for eukaryotic phytoplankton and their ...
    • Micromonas versus virus: New experimental insights challenge viral impact 

      Ruiz Martinez, Eliana; Baudoux, Anne-Claire; Simon, Nathalie; Sandaa, Ruth-Anne; Thingstad, Tron Frede; Pagarete, António (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2017-05)
      Viruses have recurrently been hypothesized as instrumental in driving microbial population diversity. Nonetheless, viral mediated co-existence of r/kstrategists, predicted in the Killing-the-Winner (KtW) hypothesis, remains ...
    • Viral-host interactions: from strain to natural planktonic communities 

      Ruiz Martinez, Eliana (Doctoral thesis, 2017-10-13)
      Being the most abundant and diverse entities in planet Earth, viruses are thought to play a relevant role in controlling the composition and diversity in phytoplanktonic microbial communities. Microbial communities sustain ...
