International Census of Marine Microbes (ICoMM)

ICoMM's goal is to report what is known, what is unknown but knowable, and what may never be known about the biodiversity of marine micro-organisms by 2010.
The International Census of Marine Microbes (ICoMM) will facilitate the inventory of this microbial diversity developing a strategy to (1) catalogue all known diversity of single-cell organisms inclusive of the Bacteria, Archaea, Protista and associated viruses, (2) to explore and discover unknown microbial diversity, and (3) to place that knowledge into appropriate ecological and evolutionary contexts.
