Abstract
    Microorganisms account for most of Earth’s biodiversity. They mediate key biogeochemical processes and serve pivotal functional roles in complex ecosystems, yet little is known about mechanisms responsible for the formation of microbial ecological diversity patterns. Highthroughput molecular biology provides a powerful tool for measuring and monitoring patterns of microbial diversity. SARST-V6 (Serial Analysis of V6 Ribosomal Sequence Tags) is a promising technology that uses short DNA sequence tags to fingerprint the composition of microbial communities. To efficiently interpret the large amount of diversity information generated by this high-throughput technique we have made significant improvements to our SARST-V6 data acquisition and analysis informatics tools, which is now available through the WEB portal http://www.obs-banyuls.fr/UMR7621/SARST-V6.
