Microbial metaomics discussion group this week: metatranscriptomics and biogeography

A visiting student at my lab Lea Benedicte Skov Hansen will be leading our "metaomics" discussion group this week.  We will be discussing a combination of metatranscriptomics and biogeography and the papers of the week are:

Metatranscriptomics paper:

Microbial community gene expression in ocean surface waters. Frias-Lopez J, Shi Y, Tyson GW, Coleman ML, Schuster SC, Chisholm SW, Delong EF. Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. 2008 Mar 11;105(10):3805-10. Epub 2008 Mar 3.



Some related papers of potential interest from DeLong

We are also discussing:

Drivers of bacterial beta-diversity depend on spatial scale. Martiny JB, Eisen JA, Penn K, Allison SD, Horner-Devine MC.
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. 108(19):7850-4.  (NOTE I am an author on this one - but the meat of the ideas/work was done by Jen Martiny, Claire Horner-Devine and others).

Related papers of possible interest by Jen Martiny and Claire Horner-Divine include:

Will let everyone know how the discussions go.
