Metagenome sequencing of the prokaryotic microbiota of the hypersaline and meromictic soap lake, washington

Genome Announc. 2014 Jan 23;2(1):e01212-13. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.01212-13.


Soap Lake is a small saline lake in central eastern Washington that is sharply stratified into two layers. In addition to being highly alkaline (~pH 10), Soap Lake also contains high concentrations of sulfide. Here, we report the community profile of the prokaryotic microbiota associated with Soap Lake surface water.
