Some years ago, I provided advice and a little analysis for a group at UNSW studying marine bacteria. It’s nice to see that they remembered me:
Thomas, T., Evans, F.F., Schleheck, D., Mai-Prochnow, A., Burke, C., Penesyan, A., Dalisay, D.S., Stelzer-Braid, S., Saunders, N., Johnson, J., Ferriera, S., Kjelleberg, S. and Egan, S. (2008).
Analysis of the Pseudoalteromonas tunicata Genome Reveals Properties of a Surface-Associated Life Style in the Marine Environment.
PLoS ONE 3:e3252.
If correlating genomic features with microbial physiology is your thing, go and check it out. The article is open access, for your pleasure – as are five of my last six efforts, I just noticed.
