Microbiological Targets for Ocean Observing Laboratories (MicroTOOLs)

Workshops were held to discuss the development of in situ and high
throughput molecular (DNA, RNA, protein) approaches for studying the
biogeochemical activities of open ocean microbes.

There are two reports from this workshop that detail discussions at
the workshops, and the progress to make the first community-available
microbial oligonucleotide arrays based on genes from key marine
microbes and genes that encode biogeochemically important processes.

It is hoped that momentum will continue to grow, including wider
participation of the marine microbial community in developing and
applying this resource.
