Environmental Sample Processor (ESP)
 

The ESP project continues to grow through external collaboration between MBARI and the other organizations. Researchers from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), and the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratories (LLNL) are also involved in the NSF grant. Caltech scientists are helping to develop genetic probes specific to cold seeps. JPL engineers are considering how elements of the ESP might be useful in looking for life on other planets. Researchers at LLNL are developing additional modules that can expand ESP capacities.
