Project Name Waseca County Farm Soil Metagenome 
Domain (1) bacteria
Investigators (1)
Institution DOE Joint Genome Institute
Project Code CAM_PROJ_FarmSoil
Project Type metagenome


Surface soil (0-10 cm) was collected in September 2001 from a farm in Waseca County, Minnesota. Biochemical analysis on 20 g of soil from the same site revealed it to be clay loam, with fair to low organic matter content, high levels of essential elements, and low levels of nonessential elements.

Microscopic analysis, including SYBR green DNA staining, found the organisms in the sample to be primarily prokaryotic. PCR-amplified 16S rRNA sequences from the sample revealed the presence of numerous bacterial and archaeal lineages.
