    About This Project

    This project will characterize the microbial community structure and biodiversity of marine sediment within a national marine sanctuary. An important goal includes identifying sites with the highest potential for harboring bacteria (e.g. Streptomyces) that may contain novel biosynthetic gene clusters for natural product discovery. Metagenomics sequencing will quantify species at sites open vs. closed to fishing to inform fisheries management.
