SAMPLES ARE CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE. Please contact the NEON Biorepository for information about when these samples will become available. Genetic extracts from Battelle Applied Genomics for shotgun metagenomic sequencing of soil microbes collected during terrestrial soil sampling (NEON sample class: mic_dnaExtraction_in.soilDnaSampleID). At most sites, sampling bouts occur three times during the year in order to capture the prevailing conditions at the site during different seasons. Genetic extracts in 96-well plates from Battelle Applied Genomics are archived in the NEON Biorepository at -80 degrees Celsius. See TOS Protocol and Procedure for Soil Biogeochemical and Microbial Sampling and TOS Science Design for Terrestrial Microbial Diversity (https://data.neonscience.org/documents) for more information about this sample class. NEON datasets (https://data.neonscience.org/home) associated with this sample class include Soil Microbe Community Composition, Soil Microbe Biomass, Soil Microbe Metagenome Sequences, Soil Microbe Marker Gene Sequences, and Soil Microbe Group Abundances. The metabarcoding protocol used by Battelle Applied Genomics is available in the NEON document library (https://data.neonscience.org/documents).
