Gordon Research Conferences provide an international forum for the presentation and discussion of frontier research in the biological, chemical, physical and engineering sciences and their interfaces. There is a renewed focus on natural products that has been driven by the development of improved techniques in analytical chemistry, new screening platforms, and the application of synthetic biology, genome mining, and other transformative approaches to discovery. The Marine Natural Products GRC will feature a diverse array of international speakers describing cutting-edge developments in molecular structure determination, metabolomics, synthesis, chemical biology, biosynthesis, enzymology, and ecology.

DISCOVRE - Diversity, Systematics and Connectivity of Vulnerable Reef Ecosystems Project

This project uses amplicon sequencing, and functional microarrays to examine the microbiomes of several deep-sea coral species, with priority given to species that are also of interest to the population genetics group: Desmophyllum dianthus, Lophelia pertusa, Enallopsammiasp. and Acanthogorgia sp. The project also uses metagenomics to survey benthic habitats including coral mounds, cold seeps...
