In total, 15 samples of marine sediments were collected using a Mini Box Corer (MBC) at different depths. The top 5 cm of sediments were transferred to sterile Whirl-Pack sample bags (Nasco, WI, USA) and stored frozen onboard (-20°C). Samples were shipped to the University of São Paulo (USP) after 4 months of sampling.

研究範圍 Surface sediment samples were collected along a bathymetric gradient in King George Island (stations 1–9, depths ranging from 100 to 502 m) and NBB – Bransfield Strait (stations 10–15, depths 693–1,147 m), located in the Northwestern Antarctic Peninsula. Sampling was conducted by the Brazilian Navy vessel NApOc Ary Rongel during the austral summer, December 2008.


  1. Genomic DNA was extracted from 0.25 g of surface sediment in quadruplicate using a PowerSoil DNA Kit (MoBio, Carlsbad, CA, USA), according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Microbial 16S rRNA gene fragments were amplified using a set of primers designed by adding a 10-nucleotide barcode to the forward primer, 519F, (5′-CAGCMGCCGCGGTAATWC-3′) and reverse primer 1068R (5′-CTGACGRCRGCCATGC-3′). The amplification reaction was carried out using the Accuprime pfx SuperMix (Thermo Scientific, USA) according to the manufacturer. PCR was performed with a thermal cycler (Thermo Scientific, USA) under the following conditions: 95°C for 5 min, 26 cycles of 95°C for 15 s, 59°C for 30 s and 68°C for 1 min. The PCR products were purified by using a DNA clean & concentrator kit (Zymo Research, USA).
  2. The amplicons from each sample were mixed at equimolar concentrations and then sequenced using GSFLX titanium instruments and reagents (Roche 454, Life Sciences, USA) at the Center for Advanced Technologies in Genomics (University of São Paulo, Brazil).
