Cold-water coral microbiomes (Acanthogorgia spp. Desmophyllum dianthus, and Lophelia pertusa) from the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean off the southeast coast of the United States: raw sequencing data

Online link
Description The files provided in this U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) data release (Kellogg and Voelschow, 2021) are the raw DNA sequence files referenced in the associated journal article (Kellogg and Pratte, 2021) entitled, “Unexpected diversity of Endozoicomonas in deep-sea corals.”. This dataset,, represents the 16S rRNA gene amplicon surveys of 28 samples of deep-sea corals, including Acanthogorgia aspera (n=5), Acanthogorgia spissa (n=4), Desmophyllum dianthus (n=7), and Lophelia pertusa [Desmophyllum pertusum] (n=12), plus a kit extraction control blank. The sequencing targeted the V3-V4 variable region (primers 341F/806R) and was completed using an Illumina MiSeq sequencing system with version 2 chemistry to obtain paired-end reads. [More]
