MuSCOPEA unifying framework for SCOPE datasets to integrate ‘omics data with more traditional physical, geological, geochemical, and biological data sets collected by SCOPE researchers. SCOPE oceanographic research cruises provide abundant physical, chemical, and biological data from Station ALOHA in the North Pacific Subtropical Gyre (NPSG), through collaborative efforts of scientists from a range of disparate disciplines, using traditional as well as state-of-the-art methods and equipment. The data collected combine new data types like next generation DNA sequencing data with more traditional measurements including microscopy and geochemical and physical oceanographic data, to extend our knowledge of ocean systems over space and time at greater and greater resolution. Our lab is developing a unifying framework for SCOPE datasets to integrate ‘omics data with more traditional physical, geological, geochemical, and biological data sets collected by the broader SCOPE and oceanographic communities.
