Members of the Worden lab are at the International Society for Microbial Ecology (ISME) meeting this week in Montreal.
Deploying the ESP requires several weeks of preparation, depending on the type of deployment and the types of analyses the investigator wants to perform.
The “ink” of the probe array is made up of a single-stranded DNA probe, complementary to a unique rRNA sequence in the organisms of interest.
In short, the 2G ESP robotically performs three actions– filter Seawater, create a ‘lysate’ (by applying a lytic agent and heat to break open filtered material), and move lysate to the array

During the development of the ESP, several iterations were necessary until we had a stable, working instrument. We call this instrument the Second-Generation ESP or 2G-ESP.
Worden Lab graduate Dr. Melinda Simmons accepts Assistant Professorship at Jacksonville University. Congratulations Melinda!

Research programs at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) encompass the entire ocean, from the surface waters to the deep seafloor, and from the coastal zone to the open sea. The need to understand the ocean in all its complexity and variability drives MBARI's research and development efforts.
