Understanding nutrient cycling between algae and bacteria could lead to increased biofuel production

The interactions between algae and bacteria are essential to the primary productivity of Earth’s oceans and surface waters. Bacteria can increase the productivity of algae by producing key factors, such as vitamins, iron-chelating molecules, and growth hormones. In addition, bacteria remineralize organic matter—a process that provides a steady supply of nutrients to algae. However, not much is known about this process.
