running title

  • CoDL Baltic Sea IODP Exp 347


  • The microbiological objectives of IODP Expedition 347 Baltic Sea Paleoenvironment focused on (1) how the phylogenetic diversity of the deep biosphere in this intracontinental sea differs from that of deep-ocean communities, and (2) are microorganisms that presently live in the deep sediments remnants of limnic and marine populations, or does the modern sedimentary environment select for the community. Our objective for this CoDL project is to conduct tag 16S sequencing for both bacteria and archaea from the Baltic Sea paleoenvironment.
