TitleMicrobial community structure of Arctic multiyear sea ice and surface seawater by 454 sequencing of the 16S RNA gene
Study TypePopulation Genomics
Abstract Dramatic decreases in the extent of Arctic multiyear ice (MYI) suggest this environment may disappear as early as 2100, replaced by ecologically different first-year ice (FYI). To better understand the implications of this loss on microbial biodiversity we undertook a detailed census of the microbi .. [more]
