Pennsylvania State University, Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
Dedicated Marine Microbiology DNA Sequencing Pipeline
This grant to Pennsylvania State University will be used to increase publicly-available marine microbial DNA sequence information through the creation of a dedicated "next generation" marine microbiology DNA sequencing resource. A pyrosequencing instrument, technical support and required reagents for 75 project runs will support a two-year "experimental sequencing" pipeline dedicated to MMI grantees. New knowledge and DNA sequence information from genomics and metagenomics projects will be deposited into CAMERA for public access.
