Molecular comparison of bacterial diversity in O'Brien Bay and Brown Bay sediment samples
Entry ID: Clone_Libraries

Abstract: Two 16S rDNA clone libraries, one from a Brown Bay sample and one from an O'Brien Bay sample were generated. These samples were originally collected as part of ASAC project 868 and the microbiology of the samples is now being investigated as part of ASAC 1228.

Two data files are included in the download. Both are in "fasta" format, a text-based format for representing either nucleotide sequences or peptide sequences, in which base pairs or amino acids are represented using single-letter codes.

Further information about the dataset can also be found in the referenced paper.
