Environmental Genome Shotgun Sequencing

This grant to JCVI will generate 3-4 million DNA sequences in seven ocean samples from the North Atlantic Ocean. Several hundreds of thousands of new genes and thousands of new species of microorganisms are anticipated to be identified as a result of this grant. New knowledge regarding the diversity of species and genes will help to define the developing picture of biogeochemistry in the oceans.
