AAUQ00000000.1 epibiont metagenome
The epibiont metagenome whole genome shotgun (WGS) project has the project accession AAUQ00000000. This version of the project (01) has the accession number AAUQ01000000, and consists of sequences AAUQ01000001-AAUQ01128934.
Epibionts from a single Alvinella pompejana polychaete worm provided the source DNA for a shotgun library with 2-4kb inserts. This polychaete was collected from the Bio9 vent, at a depth of 2500m at the 9-N hydrothermal vent field on the East Pacific Rise where temperatures were recorded between 38-51deg C at the time of collection. PCR-amplified 16S rRNA sequences from the epibiont DNA revealed a highly constrained assemblage of almost entirely epsilonproteobacteria. Whole genome sequencing performed at SymBio Inc., assembly at Desert Research Institute. URL - http://ocean.dbi.udel.edu Contact: Alison Murray, firstname.lastname@example.org.
