Invitation - Launch of Microflora Danica - the microbiome of Denmark
Which microorganisms exist in Denmark? The ambition of Microflora Danica is to apply the newest DNA sequencing technologies to establish a complete overview of the microorganisms – bacteria and small eukaryotic organisms – in all typical habitats of the country. Such reference database will provide an invaluable resource for present and future studies on biodiversity, ecology and evolution and will be open for all researchers.
