Life is incredibly complex. It is wrong to assume that what you can easily see is all there is. There is a plethora of microscopic life. From a bucket of seawater, scientists have unlocked information that may lead to a deeper understanding of organisms as different as coral reefs and human disease. By analyzing genomes of a tiny, single-celled marine animal, they have demonstrated a possible way to address diverse questions such as how diseased cells differ from neighboring healthy cells and what it is about some Antarctic algae that allows them to live in warming waters while other algae die out.
