Illumina 16s amplicon sequencing data for in-situ Macquarie Island Mesocosm assessing the toxicity of residual hydrocarbons.
Entry ID: AAS_4135_Hydrocarbon_Toxicity_amplicon

Abstract: This data set is Illumina 16s (bacterial) amplicon sequencing data for the Macquarie Island mesocosm ecotoxicology study.
In-situ soil mesocosms (n=20) were set up on Macquarie Island in February 2013. Following a year?s equilibration, mesocosms were spiked in triplicate with a fuel mixture mimicking the composition of aged fuel spills on Macquarie Island, in addition to five solvent-only ... View entire text
