Marine microbiology is the study of the microorganisms (bacteria, archaea, viruses and microbial eukaryotes) in the marine environment, including their biodiversity, ecology and biogeochemistry. The use of metagenomics has been fundamental in revealing the abundance and composition of marine microbial ecosystems. Marine animals live in intimate contact with their aquatic environment that is characterized by diverse and abundant microorganisms. In the past decade marine microbiology has emerged as an important and dynamic discipline.
Marine microbiology study also deals with the determination of healthy and threatened marine organisms, assessing baseline microbial communities associated with healthy marine systems and understanding the role of microbes in coral health and disease and the beneficial factors affecting coral reef resistance and resilience. Methods combine field assessments with microbiological and molecular techniques. Interns assist with microbial culturing, DNA sequencing, PCR, cloning and there is potential to sample via snorkeling and/or SCUBA. Interns should have a basic microbiology background and an interest in coral reef protection.
