California Kelp Forest Sampling

The Dinsdale lab has been collecting metagenomes from the San Diego Bay, Kelp Forest every month and analysing the microbes asssicated with the kelpĀ Macrocystis pyrifera. Through observingĀ this activity across a long time series will provide us valuable insights into microbial functioning on kelp forest through time and across a suite of environmental parameters. The lab has been collecting samples from both San Diego Bay and Catalina Island frequently and analysing both the bacterial and viral particles from the metagneomes.
