One challenge of sample collection associated with citizen science microbiology projects is ensuring that samples are collected in a consistent manner. Assembled here are examples of sampling protocols from various citizen science projects.
Home Microbiome Project (Pilot)
–This protocol describes swab sampling of cell phones and shoes for 16S sequencing
Aquarium Water Filters
–This protocol is for sampling aquarium filters for 16S sequencing
One thought on “Citizen Science – Sampling Protocols”
I teach at a poor urban school. I would ike to participate in this program with my students.
