Little-known Marine Decomposers Attract The Attention Of Genome Sequencers

The Department of Energy (DOE) is sequencing underwater docomposers. Apparently these fungus-like organisms act much like bacteria in degrading organic matter.

  1. These organisms certainly look interesting and I think DOE is wise to research them more. Ocean microbes are a treasure trove of the unknown. Craig Venter's Sorcerer II sea voyage where he collected buckets of ocean water from around the globe is currently being analyzed using metagenomics. Who knows what this data may uncover.
