Genomic Analysis of Algal Degrader and Marinobacter

Abstract: 

Genomic Analysis of Algal Degrader and Marinobacter

This project is aimed to determine the genome sequences of two novel bacteria that were found to degrade algal cells. These researchers plan to determine the sequence and annotate the data, then make it available to researchers who may be interested in these organisms. They will also use the annotations to look for novel enzymes from each bacterium. The group is also doing RNA-Seq analysis of Marinobacter aquaeolei VT8 under lipid production conditions for comparative gene transcriptional analysis.
