    String acquisition_description 
"Seawater was transferred to 20 L carboys that were rinsed three times with
water from the sampling depth and then filled with seawater from a single
Niskin bottle, using silicone tubing that had been acid washed then rinsed
with distilled water prior to use. From each carboy, water was dispensed into
smaller glass containers that were cleaned and pre-rinsed three times with
water from the carboy prior to dispensing. This water was used to measure cell
counts, bacterial productivity, and the activities of polysaccharide
hydrolases, peptidases, and glucosidases. A separate glass Duran bottle was
filled with seawater from the carboy and sterilized in an autoclave for 20-30
minutes to serve as a killed control for microbial activity measurements.
Two substrates, -glucose and -glucose linked to a 4-methylumbelliferyl (MUF)
fluorophore, were used to measure glucosidase activities. Five substrates
linked to a 7-amido-4-methyl coumarin (MCA) fluorophore, one amino acid \\u2013
leucine \\u2013 and four oligopeptides \\u2013 the chymotrypsin substrates
alanine-alanine-phenylalanine (AAF) and alanine-alanine-proline-phenylalanine
(AAPF), and the trypsin substrates glutamine-alanine-arginine (QAR) and
phenylalanine-serine-arginine (FSR) \\u2013 were used to measure exo- and endo-
acting peptidase activities, respectively. Hydrolysis rates of the substrates
were measured as an increase in fluorescence as the fluorophore was hydrolyzed
from the substrate over time [as in Hoppe, 1993; Obayashi and Suzuki, 2005].
Incubations with the seven low molecular weight substrates were set up in a
96-well plate. For each substrate, triplicate wells were filled with a total
volume of 200 L seawater for experimental incubations; triplicate wells were
filled with 200 L autoclaved seawater for killed control incubations.
Substrate was added at saturating concentrations. A saturation curve was
determined with surface water from each station to determine saturating
concentrations of substrate. The saturating concentration was identified as
the lowest tested concentration of substrate at which additional substrate did
not yield higher rates of hydrolysis. Fluorescence was measured over 24-48
hours incubation time with a plate reader (TECAN spectrafluor plus; 360 nm
excitation, 460 emission), with time points taken every 4-6 hours. Hydrolysis
rates were calculated from the rate of increase of fluorescence in the
incubation over time relative to a set of standards of known concentration of
fluorophore. Scripts to calculate hydrolysis rates and produce the figures
shown here are available in the associated Github repository [Hoarfrost,
The potential of the seawater microbial community to hydrolyze six high-
molecular-weight polysaccharides (arabinogalactan, chondroitin sulfate,
fucoidan, laminarin, pullulan, and xylan) was investigated in surface and
bottom water. For each substrate, three 50 mL falcon tubes were filled with
seawater and one 50 mL falcon tube was filled with autoclaved seawater to
serve as a killed control. Substrate was added at 3.5 \\u03bcM monomer-
equivalent concentrations, except for fucoidan, which was added at 5 \\u03bcM
concentrations (a higher concentration was necessary for sufficient
fluorescence signal). Two 50 mL falcon tubes \\u2013 one with seawater and one
with autoclaved seawater \\u2013 with no added substrate served as blank
controls. Incubations were stored in the dark at as close to in situ
temperature as possible. Subsamples of the incubations were collected at time
zero, and at six subsequent time points (t1-t6): 2 days, 5 days, 10 days, 17
days, 30 days, and 42 days. At each time point, 2 mL of seawater was collected
from the 50 mL falcon tube using a sterile syringe, filtered through a 0.2
\\u03bcm pore size syringe filter, and stored frozen until processing.";

They are widely used in research, drug discovery, bioassay validation, quality control and manufacturing processes in the pharmaceutical and biotechnological industry and academic organizations. Sample reactions can be assayed in 6-1536 well format microtiter plates. The most common microplate format used in academic research laboratories or clinical diagnostic laboratories is 96-well (8 by 12 matrix) with a typical reaction volume between 100 and 200 uL per well. Higher density microplates (384- or 1536-well microplates) are typically used for screening applications, when throughput (number of samples per day processed) and assay cost per sample become critical parameters, with a typical assay volume between 5 and 50 µL per well. Common detection modes for microplate assays are absorbance, fluorescence intensity, luminescence, time-resolved fluorescence, and fluorescence polarization.

"NSF Award Abstract:
Heterotrophic microbial communities are key players in the marine carbon cycle, transforming and respiring organic carbon, regenerating nutrients, and acting as the final filter in sediments through which organic matter passes before long-term burial. Microbially-driven carbon cycling in the ocean profoundly affects the global carbon cycle, but key factors determining rates and locations of organic matter remineralization are unclear. In this study, researchers from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill will investigate the ability of pelagic microbial communities to initiate the remineralization of polysaccharides and proteins, which together constitute a major pool of organic matter in the ocean. Results from this study will be predictive on a large scale regarding the nature of the microbial response to organic matter input, and will provide a mechanistic framework for interpreting organic matter reactivity in the ocean.
Broader Impacts: This study will provide scientific training for undergraduate and graduate students from underrepresented groups. The project will also involve German colleagues, thus strengthening international scientific collaboration.";

Using tabledap to Request Data and Graphs from Tabular Datasets

tabledap lets you request a data subset, a graph, or a map from a tabular dataset (for example, buoy data), via a specially formed URL. tabledap uses the OPeNDAP (external link) Data Access Protocol (DAP) (external link) and its selection constraints (external link).

The URL specifies what you want: the dataset, a description of the graph or the subset of the data, and the file type for the response.

Tabledap request URLs must be in the form
For example,
Thus, the query is often a comma-separated list of desired variable names, followed by a collection of constraints (e.g., variable<value), each preceded by '&' (which is interpreted as "AND").

For details, see the tabledap Documentation.
