Prokaryotic genetic diversity throughout the salinity gradient of a coastal solar saltern.
Bacterial and archaeal assemblages have been studied in a multipond solar saltern using a range of microbial ecology techniques by four laboratories simultaneously. These include 16S rDNA sequencingExpand

Defining seasonal marine microbial community dynamics
Here we describe, the longest microbial time-series analyzed to date using high-resolution 16S rRNA tag pyrosequencing of samples taken monthly over 6 years at a temperate marine coastal site offExpand

Improved group-specific PCR primers for denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis analysis of the genetic diversity of complex microbial communities
Phylum- and class-specific PCR primers were tested for the production of clone libraries and for denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE) analysis of complex bacterial communities. Primers wereExpand

Detection of Large Numbers of Novel Sequences in the Metatranscriptomes of Complex Marine Microbial Communities
Background Sequencing the expressed genetic information of an ecosystem (metatranscriptome) can provide information about the response of organisms to varying environmental conditions. UntilExpand

Will ocean acidification affect marine microbes?
The pH of the surface ocean is changing as a result of increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2), and there are concerns about potential impacts of lower pH and associated alterations in seawaterExpand

Phytoplankton biomass and production in the southern North Sea
Surface chlorophyll concentrations in the southern North Sea have been contoured for a 15 mo period, from 4 August 1988 to 3 October 1989. Seasonal changes in chlorophyll concentration show lowExpand

The minimum information about a genome sequence (MIGS) specification
With the quantity of genomic data increasing at an exponential rate, it is imperative that these data be captured electronically, in a standard format. Standardization activities must proceed withinExpand

The seasonal structure of microbial communities in the Western English Channel.
Very few marine microbial communities are well characterized even with the weight of research effort presently devoted to it. Only a small proportion of this effort has been aimed at investigatingExpand

Changes in archaeal, bacterial and eukaryal assemblages along a salinity gradient by comparison of genetic fingerprinting methods in a multipond solar saltern.
Microbial communities inhabiting a multipond solar saltern were analysed and compared using SSU rRNA polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based fingerprintings carried out in parallel by fourExpand
