Quotes

...measurement technique could enable scientists to directly track changes in the ocean's microbial communities and biogeochemistry, Saito added. "We can get so much more coverage and a much richer picture of what's happening."
"We're building an oceanic proteomic capability, which includes sampling with ocean-going robots, to allow us to diagnose the inner workings of ocean ecosystems and understand how they respond to global change."
