This table shows the metadata and links to sources of the data and
citations associated with the publicly available metagenome sequences
used in the Dinsdale,et al., analysis of eight different metagenomes
collected across the northern Line Island. The links will take you to
the annotated sequences in the metagenomics SEED, CAMERA, and the NCBI
Short Read Archve. Please note that all metagenomes are currently
available to download via the ftp links, some are available in the
meta-RAST, and other links will be added as soon as they become
available. Citations for individual metagenomes will also be added as
and when they become available.
DNA sequences for all metagenomes are avaialble via anonymous FTP. You may browse the list at ftp.theseed.org or select an individual genome from the list below.
