STUDY DESCRIPTION
PI Name Rubin EM
Description The metabolic capabilities of terrestrial and marine microbial communities were compared using largely unassembled sequence data obtained by shotgun sequencing DNA isolated from whale fall and soil. The gene content isolated from soil was compared to environmental sequence data isolated from three whale fall carcasses, acid mine drainage, and the Sargasso Sea. Analysis of these metagenomes identified genes that display environment-dependent characteristics, distribution and expression.
