16S rRNA Amplicon Sequencing of Microbial Biofilms from Marsberg Copper Mine, Germany

Microbiol Resour Announc. 2021 Feb 4;10(5):e01315-20. doi: 10.1128/MRA.01315-20.


The 16S rRNA amplicons from biofilms inhabiting rocks near various water bodies of Marsberg Copper Mine (Rhenish Massif, Germany) reveal the diversity of their microbial communities. The abundance of Chloroflexi and Cyanobacteria taxa in the biofilms near leachate streams indicated the selective enrichment of Ktedonobacteria and Oxyphotobacteria members.
