    About This Project

    Interest in characterizing the microbial communities exposed to environmental stressors has been reinvigorated along with their potential for harboring natural products, relevant to human health. Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary includes regions open and closed to fishing. Little is known of impacts such as bottom trawls that disrupt food webs. Harnessing advances in genomics, our study tests whether fishing activity alters sediment microbial diversity.
