Abstract: This dataset consists of 81 DNA sequences of the alkane mono-oxygenase gene. The sequence data are in FASTA format which can be opened with any word-processing or sequence analysis software.

The clone library was created using the primers described by Kloos et al. (2006, Journal Microbiological Methods 66:486-496) F: AAYACNGCNCAYGARCTNGGNCAYAA and R:GCRTGRTGRTCNGARTGNCGYTG.

The library was created from a soil sample collected at the Main Powerhouse on Macquarie Island and is Human Impacts Sample Tracking Database barcode number:52774.

These data were collected as part of AAS project 2672 - Pathways of alkane biodegradation in antarctic and subantarctic soils and sediments.
