The Marine Microbial Eukaryote Transcriptome Sequencing Project (MMETSP) – New database provides vast trove of genetic information on tiny single-celled organisms in the ocean


The ocean holds a bewildering array of microscopic life. Many of the smaller organisms are difficult to study or even to identify under a microscope. For this reason, scientists often look at the genes of these microbes to figure out ...
