Description: Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institue 7700 Sandholdt Road Moss Landing, CA 95039, USA. The OceanSensors08 workshop held 31 March–4 April 2008 in Warnemünde, Germany, brought together an international group of marine scientists, sensor developers and technologists with a common interest in shaping the future of ocean sensing. In preparation for that meeting a series of review papers were commissioned, one of which was meant to cover Sensors for Ocean-omics. The ocean-omics topic was cast very broadly. The notion was to review use of genetic techniques for assessing presence and diversity of organisms, their genomic capacity and gene expression, and to provide a prospectus of how such methods could be applied in an autonomous capacity. I chose ecogenomic sensor as a descriptor to covey the essence of such a system – a device that integrates genetic level sensing with larger scale environmental characterization. But what exactly are ecogenomic sensors? A clear definition is lacking and conceptualizations of these devices far outweigh actual hardware that can be deployed in the ocean. This prospectus builds from that point. I advance a definition of ecogenomic sensor and outline the opportunities and challenges associated with developing such devices. Suggestions as to how this class of instrument may be further refined and applied are offered against the backdrop of the Autonomous Microbial Genosensor (AMG) and Environmental Sample Processor (ESP). Applications that center on detection of DNA and RNA are emphasized. The word review appears in the title at the request of the editors.
