016 Advances in Aquatic Meta-Omics: Creating Tools for More Accurate Characterization of Microbial Communities

The field of aquatic meta-omics is rapidly expanding, resulting in the generation of an abundance of metagenomic, metatranscriptomic, and metaproteomic datasets. These new datasets have the capability to reveal essential information about microbial biodiversity and roles in ecosystem processes, however, many of the newly sequenced metacommunity species are poorly annotated in the literature and in databases. Although recognized as an emerging area of research, the nuances of inter-species and microbe- environment interactions are frequently not well understood. Even when we are able to confidently annotate genes and proteins, we are relying on sequence homology with model organisms, from the nucleotides to the pathways. These gaps in data interpretation make it difficult to maximize the value of newly generated large datasets. Despite these challenges, the study of microbiomes is gaining momentum; this session encourages submissions with novel methods for visualizing, analyzing, and interpreting meta-omics data that will help us move towards a better understanding of aquatic microbial processes and ecosystem influences.
