Exploring the composition, variation and interactions of unicellular organisms in the marine benthic community with DNA metabarcoding
The marine benthic ecosystem, encompassing the sea floor and the sedimentary habitats within, plays a crucial role in major biogeochemical cycles and the functioning of the marine ecosystem. Despite its importance, many aspects of its ecology remain understudied, such as microbial community composition and bacteria–eukaryote interactions. In recent years, molecular ecology methods, in pa...
