Two new papers explore microbial symbioses this week, while genetic sequencing is also a theme, from method progression and application to the equitable access and sharing of benefits associated with genetic resources. Paris Stefanoudis and team consider the important issue of parachute science, revealing that such practices are still widespread in marine research, while making recommendations to help change the status quo. There are plenty of opportunities this week, from getting involved in deep-sea expeditions from home to scholarships, DSBS Society Awards and an ISA call for proposals. There are a lot of events happening next week, but of particular note a Song of the Ocean Live Interview will be taking place on Tuesday – be sure to register to learn all about this unique collaboration between science and the arts, it’s time to warm up those vocal chords in support of our ocean!
