D. Analysis of microbial communities1. Cultivation-based services (Acquisition and maintenance of stock microbial cultures, cultivation of pure cultures for inoculations and/or in vitro studies and for preparation of conditioned media).2. Non-cultivation-based services (In conjunction with CAMR, analysis of microbial community structure [16S rRNA-based], metagenomics and metatranscriptomics, and qPCR for relative bacterial load, sulfate-reducing organisms in a community, and butyrate producing organisms). E. Assays of microbial function1. BIOLOG-based community level physiological profiling (CLPP).
