  • (a) What is the importance of Prochlorococcus for life on the planet Earth today?
  • (b) In the video, Dr. Chisholm tells us that Prochlorococcus samples from different environments that are genetically different. What does this tell us about the relationship between organisms and their environments?

Topic 2 [article]: Snails that don’t eat. A recent article by JoAnna Klein (2)* describes a partnership between the snail Gigantopelta chessoia and a chemosynthetic bacterium. The bacterium is called an “endosymbiont” because it lives inside the snail.

  • (b) What is most surprising to you about this situation?
  • (c) Explain how this relates to this week’s lessons.

Topic 3 [article]: Exercise and mitochondria. Exercise is generally known to have many beneficial effects on our bodies at several different levels. Some studies have examined the effects of exercise at the level of muscle cells. Read the press release by Cell Press (3)*.
