Rapid method for fluorometric quantification of DNA in soil
Abstract We present a new method for the quantification of DNA in soil. This method is based on a fluorescent dye, PicoGreen (Molecular Probes), that binds specifically to double-stranded DNA. TheExpand

Characterisation of bacterial communities associated with early stages of intensively reared cod (Gadus morhua) using Denaturing Gradient Gel Electrophoresis (DGGE)
High mortality is often observed during the early life stages of intensively reared cod, and believed to be at least partly caused by opportunistic bacteria. The aim of the present study was to useExpand

Virioplankton community structure along a salinity gradient in a solar saltern
The virioplankton community structure along a salinity gradient from near seawater (40‰) to saturated sodium chloride brine (370‰) in a solar saltern was investigated by pulsed-field gelExpand

Seasonal diversity and dynamics of haptophytes in the Skagerrak, Norway, explored by high-throughput sequencing
Microalgae in the division Haptophyta play key roles in the marine ecosystem and in global biogeochemical processes. Despite their ecological importance, knowledge on seasonal dynamics, communityExpand

Response of marine viral populations to a nutrient induced phytoplankton bloom at different pCO 2 levels
Abstract. During the PeECE III mesocosm experiment in 2005 we investigated how the virioplankton community responded to increased levels of nutrients (N and P) and CO2. We applied a combination ofExpand

Marine viral populations detected during a nutrient induced phytoplankton bloom at elevated pCO 2 levels
During the PEeCE III mesocosm experiment in 2005 we investigated how the virio-plankton community responded to increased levels of nutrients (N and P) and CO 2. We applied a combination of flowExpand

Seasonal Dynamics of Haptophytes and dsDNA Algal Viruses Suggest Complex Virus-Host Relationship
Viruses influence the ecology and diversity of phytoplankton in the ocean. Most studies of phytoplankton host–virus interactions have focused on bloom-forming species like Emiliania huxleyi orExpand

Fingerprinting aquatic virus communities
To circumvent the limitations of cultivation-based studies of complex microbial communities, molecular fingerprinting techniques such as pulsed field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) and denaturingExpand

Effect of increased pCO(2) on bacterial assemblage shifts in response to glucose addition in Fram Strait seawater mesocosms.
Ocean acidification may stimulate primary production through increased availability of inorganic carbon in the photic zone, which may in turn change the biogenic flux of dissolved organic carbonExpand

Effects of differences in organic supply on bacterial diversity subject to viral lysis.
Bacterial diversity is believed to be controlled both by bottom-up and top-down mechanisms such as nutrient competition, predation and viral lysis. We hypothesise that lytic viruses create trophicExpand
