Abstract:

The focus of this proposal is 1 to conduct laboratory and field trials using luciferase gene probes developed in the lab in conjunction with diversity studies to screen for related, yet novel luciferase genes in the genomes of marine bioluminescent organisms. 2 to detect in situ bioluminescent microorganisms in order to supplement bathyphotometric luminescence measurements with coincident real-time molecular data. 3 to conduct real-time PCR quantification of luciferase mRNA in dinoflagellates under different growth stages.
