Using remote instrumentation for in situ characterization of marine microbes


In collaboration with the MEGAMER facility, researchers in the Zehr Lab have been designing and implementing probes for in situ detection and characterization of microbes on the Environmental Sample Processor (ESP).  We have also been testing gene expression probes under different environmental and physiological conditions, for implementation on the ESP. Read about some of our recent findings in Robidart et al., (2012) and Robidart et al., (2014).
