Curated reference database of SSU rRNA for northern marine and freshwater communities of Archaea, Bacteria and microbial eukaryotes

Connie Lovejoy, André Comeau & Mary Thaler
High throughput sequencing technologies, such as Roche 454 pyrosequencing and Illumina can enable semi-quantitative study of communities of single-celled organisms by generating hundreds of thousands of short sequence reads from a single environmental sample. However, to identify the taxa to which these reads belong requires a reliable database of reference sequences. We maintain databases of taxa from all three domains of life found in marine and freshwater samples in the Canadian Arctic and subarctic, along...
