Benthic Communities and their Biopharmaceutical Potential

In this interdisciplinary expedition on the Exploration VesselĀ Nautilus, we intend to study the Southern California Borderland benthic communities to better grasp the biotic diversity, biopharmaceutical potential, and the substrate mineral composition of the ecosystems.
