Project Name 290 Metagenome-assembled Genomes from the Mediterranean Sea: Ongoing Effort to Generate Genomes from the Tara Oceans Dataset 
Domain (1) bacteria
Investigators (4)
Institution C-DEBI
Project Code taragenome-med
Project Type Metagenome


The Tara Oceans Expedition has provided large, publicly-accessible microbial metagenomic datasets from a circumnavigation of the globe. Utilizing several size fractions from the samples originating in the Mediterranean Sea, we have used current assembly and binning techniques to reconstruct 290 putative high-quality metagenome-assembled bacterial and archaeal genomes, with an estimated completion of ≥50%, and an additional 2,786 bins, with estimated completion of 0-50%. We have submitted our results, including initial taxonomic and phylogenetic assignments for the putative high-quality genomes, to open-access repositories (iMicrobe and FigShare) for the scientific community to use in ongoing research.


No assemblies.
