LifeWatch 2016 monthly genomic observation (16S & 18S) in the Belgian Part of the North Sea

Archived data

During monthly multidisciplinary sampling campaigns with RV Simon Stevin, various water samples are collected in the BPNS. Collected water samples are filtered onboard and bioarchived, in line with the Ocean Sampling Day protocol for metagenomics and metabarcoding of microbial and eukaryote plankton communities. These samples are either processed in the framework of various projects or made available as part of the sample library ( Here samples were processed to cover the 16S and 18S rRNA region
