About This Project

This pilot project applies multi-omics to study microbial communities along our oyster reef at Bush Terminal Park. The goal is to observe changes in these communities' functional capacity due to oyster presence, and create a framework for community-led environmental DNA analysis of local waterways. In doing so, we will solidify a partnership between two community science programs with deep roots in NYC's Sunset Park, as well as New York Climate Exchange's anchor institution.
