National Livestock Methane Program Project B.CCH.6610 / 01200.038

Data was generated for NLMP project entitled "Culture independent metagenomic approaches for understanding the functional metabolic potential of methanogen communities in ruminant livestock"

Animal Production not elsewhere classified Veterinary Microbiology (excl. Virology)

rumen methane microbiology transcriptome metatranscriptome metagenome Methanobrevibacter Methanosphaera


Datasets encompass multiple 'omics approaches to characterise methanogen communities in ruminant livestock; including 16S rRNA amplicon sequencing; in vitro transcriptomics (Methanobrevibacter ruminantium M1); targeted metagenomics (to enrich for Methanobrevibacter and Methanosphaera genomes); and metatranscriptomics

This project was supported by funding from Meat & Livestock Australia; and the Australian Government Department of Agriculture as part of the Carbon Farming Futures Filling the Research Gap Program

About this Project

Metagenomic approaches for understanding

Many surveys continue to be undertaken with the aim of cataloguing the key microbes responsible for methane production in livestock (“who’s there?”), but these studies have been unable to provide functional information to describe their behaviour in the rumen (“what are they doing?”). There is a paucity of knowledge about how the genetic potential... more

Rumen Methanobacteriales metagenomes

Bovine rumen samples were enriched in the lab to increase the representation of DNA from members of the order Methanobacteriales
