The Deepwater Horizon blowout released a massive amount of oil and gas into the deep ocean between April and July 2010, stimulating microbial blooms of petroleum degrading bacteria. To understand the metabolic response of marine microorganisms, we sequenced ~66 million community transcripts that revealed the identity of metabolically active microbes and their roles in petroleum consumption. ~350,000 16S rRNA gene amplicons were sequenced from 17 samples to understand the community composition. The data sets listed contain quality controlled amplicon data for the 17 samples and mate paired reads of the bacterial and archaeal mRNA transcripts for 4 samples.


No assemblies.
