TitleMicrobial communities in potash mine waste material – Illumina MiSeq Data
Study TypeOther
Abstract Potash mining generates highly saline water and tailings. This creates an environment that selects for extremely halophilic and halotolerant organisms. DNA was extracted directly from three different mine waste materials: brine water, coarse tailings, and fine tailings. The samples were analyzed for .. [more]
