MLML congratulates one of our Research Faculty, Dr. Holly A. Bowers, on her just published article on the role of species composition in determining the potential domoic acid toxicity of our frequent Pseudo-nitzschia blooms in the bay. The article compares across years 2013 and 2015, the latter was part of the superbloom that ultimately caused the closure of crab fisheries along the Pacific coast. Bowers and her collaborators, including MLML's April Woods and G. Jason Smith, make use of several state of the art sampling platforms and techniques.
