On the way to the Paris Climate conference, Tara made a stopover in London. Eric Karsenti – scientific director of the Tara Oceans expedition that circumnavigated the globe between 2009 and 2012 – summarizes the results obtained from this expedition. The stay in England was also an excellent opportunity to visit the EMBL-EBI laboratory in Cambridge where the enormous quantity of DNA-sequence data from the Tara Oceans samples are stored.
