075 Marine Microbial Biodiversity, Bioinformatics, and Biotechnology

The genomic revolution is transforming our understanding of marine plankton ecosystems. There is also massive potential for biotechnological innovation without overharvesting the marine environment. Projects such as the EU-funded Micro B3 project (Biodiversity, Bioinformatics, Biotechnology, www.microb3.eu) are aiming to bring about major developments in the field of environmental bioinformatics to support the ecological and evolutionary understanding of marine microbial ecosystems and to exploit their novel properties for biotechnological applications. The session will showcase how current sequencing technologies can efficiently generate big data within a tractable environmental context, allowing the creation of integrated knowledge to inform marine ecosystems biology and modeling. Moreover, we will encourage examples showing how such approaches can facilitate detection of candidate genes that can be explored by targeted laboratory experiments for biotechnology and for assigning potential functions to unknown genes. Issues related to the intellectual property agreements required for the protection and sustainable use of pre-competitive microbial genetic resources and their exploitation in high potential commercial applications are also encouraged. To underline the translational character of microbial oceanographic research, outreach and training activities aimed at diverse stakeholders, as well as activities related to the Ocean Sampling Day initiative, will also be addressed.
