Quotes

...According to news reporting from Cambridge, Massachusetts , by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "To explore how microbial community composition and function varies within a coral reef ecosystem, we performed metagenomic sequencing of seawater from four niches across Heron Island Reef, within the Great Barrier Reef. Metagenomes were sequenced from seawater samples associated with (1) the surface of the coral species Acropora palifera, (2) the surface of the coral species Acropora aspera, (3) the sandy substrate within the reef lagoon and (4) open water, outside of the reef crest."
...Money succeeds in driving home his main point: biology isn't really about the animals. Focusing our efforts on them, he says, "is no more sensible than evaluating all of English literature by reading nothing but a Harry Potter book"
