Center for Microbial Oceanography: Research and Education


View this Opportunity's Website 


Description:
Life has its origins in the sea: the first living things were microbes. Marine microbes are the most abundant life forms on Earth, and everything about them is extraordinarily diverse: their structures, their genomes, their physiologies, and their ecological interactions with each other and with the rest of life on the planet.

As a global research information center working across disciplines, C-MORE brings together teams of experts—scientists, educators, and community members—who usually have little opportunity to interact, facilitating the creation and dissemination of a new understanding of the critically important role of marine microbes in global habitability.

The center’s mission and unifying vision is expressed in the motto: Linking Genomes to Biomes.
