One of the goals of the Chisholm Lab is to develop Prochlorococcus, and
its phage, as a model system for Integrative Systems Biology.
Advances in sequencing and high-throughput technologies have begun to
generate massive databases of microbial genes and transcriptomes in
the oceans, and we are fortunate that Prochlorococcus genes are well
represented in these data bases.
In addition, genomes of cultured
isolates of Prochlorococcus, and the phage that infect them, are
growing in number, as are microarray experiments to examine gene
expression. The goal of this public website is to provide easy access to this growing database of Prochlorococcus.
We need your help to keep ProPortal live
Please take a moment and send us a short email (email@example.com)
describing its value to your work.
We will need this information to raise funds to
keep it going. Thanks!
