Global patterns of 16S rRNA diversity at a depth of millions of sequences per sample
The ongoing revolution in high-throughput sequencing continues to democratize the ability of small groups of investigators to map the microbial component of the biosphere. In particular, theExpand

Toward an ecological classification of soil bacteria.
Although researchers have begun cataloging the incredible diversity of bacteria found in soil, we are largely unable to interpret this information in an ecological context, including which groups ofExpand

Pyrosequencing-Based Assessment of Soil pH as a Predictor of Soil Bacterial Community Structure at the Continental Scale
ABSTRACT Soils harbor enormously diverse bacterial populations, and soil bacterial communities can vary greatly in composition across space. However, our understanding of the specific changes in soilExpand

The diversity and biogeography of soil bacterial communities.
For centuries, biologists have studied patterns of plant and animal diversity at continental scales. Until recently, similar studies were impossible for microorganisms, arguably the most diverse andExpand

Bacterial Community Variation in Human Body Habitats Across Space and Time
Growing on You The human gut and skin harbor diverse microbial communities that are known to vary strikingly among individuals. Here, Costello et al. (p. 1694, published online 5 November) analyzedExpand

Assessment of Soil Microbial Community Structure by Use of Taxon-Specific Quantitative PCR Assays
ABSTRACT Here we describe a quantitative PCR-based approach to estimating the relative abundances of major taxonomic groups of bacteria and fungi in soil. Primers were thoroughly tested forExpand

Variations in microbial community composition through two soil depth profiles
Soil profiles are often many meters deep, but with the majority of studies in soil microbiology focusing exclusively on the soil surface, we know very little about the nature of the microbialExpand

Using network analysis to explore co-occurrence patterns in soil microbial communities
Exploring large environmental datasets generated by high-throughput DNA sequencing technologies requires new analytical approaches to move beyond the basic inventory descriptions of the compositionExpand

A comprehensive survey of soil acidobacterial diversity using pyrosequencing and clone library analyses
Acidobacteria are ubiquitous and abundant members of soil bacterial communities. However, an ecological understanding of this important phylum has remained elusive because its members have beenExpand
