Eukaryotic Richness in the Abyss: Insights from Pyrotag Sequencing

Published inPloS one, vol. 6, no. 4, e18169
Publication date2011

The deep sea floor is considered one of the most diverse ecosystems on Earth. Recent environmental DNA surveys based on clone libraries of rRNA genes confirm this observation and reveal a high diversity of eukaryotes present in deep-sea sediment samples. However, environmental clone-library surveys yield only a modest number of sequences with which to evaluate the diversity of abyssal eukaryotes.
