Global analysis of gene expression dynamics within the marine microbial community during the VAHINE mesocosm experiment in the southwest Pacific

Ulrike Pfreundt et al.

Data sets

16S rRNA gene amplicon and metatranscriptomic datasets 105 from the VAHINE mesocosm experiment in the New Caledonian Lagoon, South West Pacific Pfreundt, U., Spungin, D., Berman-Frank, I., Bonnet, S., and Hess, W. R. bioproject/PRJNA304389/

Short summary
The VAHINE experiment in the New Caledonia lagoon (SW Pacific) targeted the dynamics of nutrient pools and fluxes, N2 fixation, and the composition and productivity of the microbial communities. To connect this information to the actual activities of diverse microbial taxa, we present the analysis of the community-wide gene expression for 23 days. The results from this experiment provide insight into the microbial activities in a low-nutrient, low-chlorophyll ecosystem and within a mesocosm.
