Unique floating lab showcases aliens of the sea

 In this handout photo taken March 30, 2014, provided by University of Florida neurobiologist Leonid Moroz, a species of comb jelly called a Beroe has swallowed another comb jelly, called a Bolinopsis. Moroz is on a quest to decode the genomic blueprints of fragile marine life, including these mysterious comb jellies, in real time - on board the ship where they were caught.
 This March 30, 2014, photo shows a sea salp and some mysterious creatures named comb jellies, caught by University of Florida neurobiologist Leonid Moroz while diving in the Gulf Stream off the coast of Florida.
 In this March 29, 2014, photo, University of Florida neurobiologist Leonid Moroz and graduate students Emily Dabe, center, and Gabrielle Winters examine an invertebrate species they caught by net in the Gulf Stream off the coast of Florida.
 This March 30, 2014, photo shows a mysterious comb jelly, called a Beroe, caught in the Gulf Stream off the coast of Florida. It is being studied in a unique University of Florida shipboard laboratory.
 This image from video, taken March 29, 2014, shows University of Florida molecular biologist Andrea Kohn in front of a genomic sequencing machine attached to a special tilting tabletop that bobs with rough waves in this shipboard laboratory during a sail in the Gulf Stream off the coast of Florida
 This March 30, 2014, photo shows a collection of mysterious sea creatures named comb jellies, caught in the Gulf Stream off the coast of Florida and about to be studied in a unique shipboard laboratory. The sack-shaped light pink one on top, called a Beroe, later will swallow its larger cousin.
 In this March 30, 2014, photo, University of Florida neurobiologist Leonid Moroz looks through a microscope to dissect nerve cells from a mysterious marine creature called a comb jelly, while on board a ship off the coast of Florida.
 This March 30, 2014, photo, University of Florida graduate student Rachel Sanford works with samples of mysterious sea creatures called comb jellies in a unique floating laboratory, sailing off the coast of Florida.
 In this March 30, 2014, photo, University of Florida neurobiologist Leonid Moroz works with mysterious sea creatures called comb jellies outside his unique floating laboratory, aboard a ship off the coast of Florida
This March 30, 2014, photo shows University of Florida researchers working with invertebrate species caught in the Gulf Stream off the coast of Florida and headed for a unique shipboard laboratory where the scientists are studying the animals' genetics in real time.
