Study Detail

TitleamoA-based consensus phylogeny of ammonia-oxidizing archaea and deep sequencing of amoA genes from soils of four different geographic regions
Study TypeOther
Abstract Ammonia-oxidizing archaea (AOA) play a crucial role in nitrification and many studies exploit their amoA genes as marker for their diversity and abundance. We present an archaeal amoA consensus phylogeny based on all publicly available sequences (status June 2010) and provide evidence for the divers .. [more]
Description Amplicon sequencing of archaeal amoA, bacterial amoA, Nitrospira nxrB, Nitrobacter nxrB in 16 soils from Namibia, Costa Rica, Austria, and Greenland and from one wastewater treatment plant.
