Earth Microbiome Pilot Project to Sequence 10,000 Microbes En Route to 200,000

The team is employing two sequencing strategies: a metagenomics approach and amplicon sequencing of the 16S and 18S ribosomal RNA genes. In total, 30 to 40 trillion base pairs of sequence data will be generated from the 10,000 samples.
