Bacteria (16S) in Antarctic terrestrial soils of the Sor Rondane Mountains
Illumina sequencing data of bacterial communities in 52 soil samples from the western Sør Rondane Mountains (Dronning Maud Land, East Antarctica).The samples were taken along broad environmental gradients, including different types of bedrock, in an area covering nearly 1000 km2.

|Study Area Description||The Sop Ronda Mountains (SRM) (22° E-28° E, 71°30′ S-72°40′ S) are a 220 km long, east-west oriented mountain range, situated about 200 km inland, with peaks reaching 3300 m a.s.l. The bedrock is mainly metamorphic (e.g. gneiss) with some plutonic (granite) outcrops.|
