Diversity of microeukaryotes using the 18S ribosomal RNA

The University of Southern California will use this grant to conduct a global survey of the diversity of single-celled microbial eukaryotes (protists), a vastly understudied aspect of marine microbial diversity. Outputs include the generation of 1000 full length 18S ribosomal RNA sequences from each of twelve diverse marine sites and ecological and phylogenetic analyses of the DNA sequences and associated metadata. This project will provide a deeper understanding of protist diversity, ecology, biogeography, and globally dominant genotypes.
