EMBRC is excited to announce that it is launching the European Marine Omics Biodiversity Observation Network (EMO BON).
EMO BON includes 16 coastal observatory stations around Europe and aims to frequently sample different habitats for marine biodiversity. Plankton microorganisms, sediment microorganisms, meio- and macrobenthos are among the communities to be analysed by applying metagenomics and DNA metabarcoding. The sampling conducted through EMO BON will complement the significant observation efforts already being carried out at EMBRC sites. The first sampling will be conducted on 21 June 2021.
