Understanding The Oceans Microbes Is Key To The Earth's Future: "'Since life most likely began in the oceans, marine microorganisms are the closest living descendants of the original forms of life,' says Jennie Hunter-Cevera of the University of Maryland Biotechnology Institute, one of the authors of the report, 'They are also major pillars of the biosphere; their unique metabolisms allow marine microbes to carry out many steps of the biogeochemical cycles that other organisms are unable to complete. The smooth functioning of these cycles is necessary for life to continue on earth.'"
