2010/11 VMS Geonomics sampling - data collected from the VMS (Voyage Marine Science) voyage of the Aurora Australis
Entry ID: VMS_Genomics

Abstract: Purpose of future metagenomic (DNA), metaproteomic (protein) and metatranscriptomic (RNA) analysis:

For each sample, two drums (~200L each) of seawater were collected. Samples were taken from CTD sites, and surface samples (2m depth) taken at each of these sites. At most of these CTD sites, a deeper sample was taken according to the location of the DCM at that site. The 200L seawater is pumped ... View entire text
