Abstract
    The enormous microbial diversity in the world's oceans is only starting to be explored. In their Perspective, Falkowski and de Vargas discuss a major effort using high-throughput DNA sequencing and computational genomics to identify all of the microbes in 1500 liters of surface seawater from the North Atlantic (Venter et al.).
