    About This Project

    Shark microbiomes, the partial or collective genes from the microbial communities, remain under characterized in the field of animal genomics. Characterizing the microbiome of various shark species will allow identification of the most important microbial "symbionts", which are an animal's normal flora. Four anatomical areas of each individual shark will be sampled for microbial analysis to determine community composition: Skin, mouth, gills, and cloaca.
