|Title||Sequenced genes (ureC gene) and a metagenome from Archaea in Arctic and Antarctic marine environments|
|Funding||454 pyrosequencing was supported by the K&A Wallemberg foundation. This work is a contribution to the International Polar Year–CFL system study (2007/2008) supported through grants from the Canadian International Polar Year Federal Program Office and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) Canada, the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation Grant Boreal CLG2007-28872-E/ANT, and the Swedish Research Council. Additional support was given by the Marie Curiellowship PIEFGA-2008-221121 and a “Juan de la Cierva” contract from the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation. We acknowledge support by the National Science Foundation Antarctic Organisms and Ecosystems ProgramGrants ANT-0741409 and ANT-08361440; Swedish Research Council Environment, Agricultural Sciences, and Spatial Planning Grant 217- 2006-342; and NSERC of Canada.|
The personnel involved in the project:
Samples were collected by using a ship-deployed rosette for open water sampling and through the ship’s internal moon pool for winter ice-covered sampling.
|Study Extent||Water samples were collected near the surface and in deeper halocline waters from the Arctic Southeast Beaufort Sea during the overwintering CFL cruise and in the upper 500 m from the Antarctic Amundsen and Ross seas during the summer in the Oden Southern Ocean cruise.|
