AtlantECO project proposes a system of standards and best practices inspired by the International System of Units, and grounded on the pioneering work of the Tara Oceans expedition. This pragmatic approach allows AtlantECO to rapidly deploy a first suite of protocols across its flagship activities, while working on the aggregation and harmonisation of additional, community specific best practices.
AtlantECO is organising the webinar "Key sampling protocols for the sequencing and imaging of Ocean Microbiomes webinar" on 21 May 2021 from 4pm to 6pm (CEST). During this webinar, the project is going to present a few key sampling protocols for the sequencing and imaging of Ocean Microbiomes in an effort to spread their use on board third party cruises and at marine stations bordering the Atlantic Ocean.
Following the presentation of two sampling "kits", discussions will revolve around the AtlantECO capacity building strategy and the challenges ahead.
AtlantECO is one of the projects involved in our project group in the Horizon Results Booster
