It is great to develop the capability of indentifying and quantifying the "minor" D-amino acids, which may be biomarkers for microbial production of RDOM. Have you thought of performing laboratory experiments using representative bacteria that have been known to contain pathways of D-amino acid biosynthesis? It will be interesting to find out whether genomic information can help you validate the biological source of D amino acids in the natural environment.
