A first: SDSU Scientists Sequence DNA at Sea

For the first time ever, DNA has been sequenced at sea and researchers from San Diego State University (SDSU) and other higher learning institutions from around the world have been credited for the achievement. According to reports, many research questions remain unanswered after specimens are generally collected and then analyzed in a lab.

Associated Press has revealed that the group was out on a five-island expedition for three weeks and used the MV Hanse Explorer. The team converted the ship into a scientific instrument and placed equipment throughout the vessel.
