  • Date Awarded:
    Nov 2007
  • Amount:
  • Term:
    39 months
  • Grant ID:
  • Funding Area:

To support a collaborative team of researchers to address gaps in understanding about the diversity and ecology of the eukaryotic microorganisms in the sea, develop eukaryotic metagenomics methods, perform quality control experiments to assess sampling and sequencing biases, and synthesize ecological and sequence data. This intensive molecular and environmental investigation aimed to decipher key ecological interactions among the larger and particle-attached marine eukaryotes, bacteria and archaea through the development of novel, validated eukaryotic metagenomic tools of broad use to the research community.
