Soil samples were collected in triplicate in the fall of 2017 across the three grassland locations having differences in historical annual precipitation field site locations (WA, IA, KS). For each location, one deeply sequenced composite metagenome was obtained to detect viral contigs using a...

Soil samples were collected in triplicate in the Fall of 2017 across the three grassland locations having differences in historical annual precipitation (WA-TmG.1.0, KS-TmG.1.0, and IA-TmG.1.0). For each location, one deeply sequenced composite metagenome (> 1 terabase) were screened for viruses,In...

The soil microbiome is central to the cycling of carbon and other nutrients and to the promotion of plant growth. Despite its importance, analysis of the soil microbiome is difficult due to its sheer complexity, with thousands of interacting species. Here, we reduced this complexity by developing...

The novel fungal strain, Fusarium sp. DS 682, was isolated from the rhizosphere of the perennial grass, Bouteloua gracilis, at the Konza Prairie Biological Station in Kansas. This fungal strain is common across North American grasslands and is resilient to environmental fluctuations. The draft...

To enable a comprehensive survey of the metabolic potential of complex soil microbiomes, we performed ultra-deep metagenome sequencing, collecting >1 terabase of sequence data from grassland soils representing different precipitation regimes. Soil sample collections representing an intermediate...

Soil samples representing a frequent precipitation regime...
As part of the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory’s (PNNL) Science Focus Area program, we are investigating the impact of environmental change on microbial community function in grassland soils. Three grassland soils, representing different moisture regimes, were selected for ultra-deep...

Soil sample collections representing an arid regime soil...

Soil microorganisms play fundamental roles in cycling of soil carbon, nitrogen, and other nutrients, yet we have a poor understanding of how soil microbiomes are shaped by their nutritional and physical environment. In this study, we investigated the successional dynamics of a soil microbiome during...
Investigation of the successional dynamics of a soil microbiome during 21-weeks of enrichment on chitin and its monomer, N-acetylglucosamine (NAG). Soil community succession was observed and analyzed over time in both a physically heterogeneous soil matrix as well as a homogeneous liquid medium...
