Project: An improved metagenetic approach to characterize the diversity and dynamics of marine nematodes

project duration
01/01/11 – 31/12/11
abstract
This project investigates spatial heterogeneity and temporal shifts in nematode communities to characterize what are ‘rare species’. We use next generation sequencing on nuclear and a mitochondrial marker gene and compare the diversity estimates so obtained with estimates based on morphological identification.
