Terabase Metagenome Sequencing of Grassland Soil Microbiomes

Description

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 metagenomic sequencing, resulting in >1 terabase (Tb) of sequence data per location. This dataset serves as a resource for deep analysis of soil microbiome composition and metabolic potential.

 

Terabase soil metagenome samples were collected from Washington State University’s Irrigated Agriculture Research and Extension Center (IAREC), Konza Prairie Biological Station (KPBS), and Iowa State University’s Comparison of Biofuel Systems (COBS).The versions described in this paper are the first version. Dataset downloads contain raw read sequencing files, assembly files, functional annotations, field site collection plot maps, MIMS.me.soil.5.0 metadata information, and dataset “Read Me” files.
