Study Detail

TitleWe employed shotgun metagenome and 16S rDNA gene amplicon sequencing of topsoil samples to robustly compare the taxonomic and functional gene content variability of microbial soil communities between two key soil ecosystems for climate change, a remote Alaskan tundra (melting) permafrost (AK) and a natural prairie temperate soil in Oklahoma (OK).

Abstract How soil microbial communities from different ecosystems contrast with respect to taxonomic and functional composition remains an unresolved question; one that is vital to predict how climate change will affect soil carbon. We employed shotgun metagenome and 16S rRNA gene amplicon sequencing to char .. [more]
