Title: Methanotrophs in Antarctica
Description:
Abstract:
Metadata record for data from ASAC Project 869 See the link below for public details on this project. Dataset included are for the characterisation of methanotrophs from saline lakes of the Vestfold Hills: 1. Strain designations, availability, media and growth conditions employed 2. Population data: most probable number counting and epifluorescent direct counts 3. Phenotypic data: morphology, nutriotional and biochemical characteristics 4. Chemical characteristics: fatty acid data 5. Genotypic data: DNA base composition and DNA:DNA hybridisation data 6. Phylogenetic data: 16S rRNA gene sequences (data stored in Genbank). The download file contains: File 1: Lakes sampled in project including sample type, sample depth. File 2: Lake water sample chemical data (methane, oxygen, temperature and salinity). File 3. Methanotroph abundance data - includes total direct cell count, methanotroph abundance estimated by most probable number counting. File 4. Methanotroph phenotypic data (morphology, physicochemical and biochemical profiles). File 5. Methanotroph fatty acid data determined by GC/MS analysis that could be definitively identified. File 6. Methanotroph genetic comparison data File 7. Text file. 16S rRNA gene sequence of representative strain from study (Methylosphaera hansonii type strain). See the referenced publications for more information.
