The Tara Oceans is a unique circumnavigation of the Earth on a 35 meters schooner to analyze and collect plankton communities as well as corals specimens to establish a freely available database comprising satellite images, geochemical data, images, as well as genomic sequences to describe them at best. The TAra Oceans Marine biology Imaging platform (TA.O.M.I.) provides optimal imaging and cytometry equipments for the researchers on board during their three years journey. This is a challenge due to the boat size, its stability and the limited amount of energy that challenges optical instrument designers. This website presents in detail the TA.O.M.I. platform as well as an access to the data collected during the cruise.
