Metagenomics of Antarctic Lakes: a Model for Defining Microbial Biogeochemical Processes in the Cold - Ace Lake DataEntry ID: ASAC_2899_Ace
Abstract: Metadata record for data from ASAC Project 2899
See the link below for public details on this project.
We conducted a genomic analysis of Archaea and Bacteria collected from lakes in the Vestfold Hills, Antarctica. This provided a new level of understanding about the life forms inhabiting these cold lakes. Linked to knowledge of meteorological, geological, chemical and physical data that has been ... collected over years of previous research, the new genomic data will generate a complete understanding of how the microorganisms have evolved and how they have transformed and presently interact with the Antarctic environment. Deriving an integrated understanding of microbial ecology is essential for determining ways of preserving the health of the World's ecosystems.
This metadata record covers a specific dataset collected at Ace Lake in teh Vestfold Hills. Comprehensive documentation describing this dataset is not available. For further information on the project, see other metadata records related to project 2899.

Quality The data from Ace Lake were collected using a YSI Sonde 6600 Multifunction Probe the 20th of December, 2006.
Biomass collection was collected between December 20-25. In addition to Ace Lake, surface water samples from Organic and Deep lakes for filtering were also collected. The biomass samples were collected using a Millipore Filter System with three 293mm Filter Disk Holders with sequential 3.0, 0.8 and 0.1 micrometer filters. For concentrated filtrate samples we used a Millipore Pellicon-2 Tangential Flow Filtration System with a Pellicon II Ultrafiltration Biomax 50kD Cassette. The sediment was sampled with an Eckman sediment grab.
