We report the growth rate of a single strain of the Arctic prasinophyte Micromonas polaris CCMP2099 measured in the lab over long-duration experiments (170-340 generations).

There are five treatments (2°C, 6°C, 13°C, 13°C high light, 13°C periodic nitrate depletion) with 6 replicate lines per treatment. Growth rates are estimated at each culture transfer (semi-continuous cultures).
