Global Ocean Survey Metagenomics: Botany Bay

The J. Craig Venter Institute will use this grant to perform metagenomic surveys of biofilm microbial communities and associated planktonic populations in Botany Bay, Australia. Grant outputs include the generation and annotation of over 1.2 million sequencing lanes of DNA sequence data, and the prompt public release of these data to a public DNA sequence data repository. This effort is expected to assess the microbial diversity in biofilm communities that inhabit the surfaces of sponges and macroalgae and may lead to the discovery of novel bioactive compounds.
