The effects of dissolved and particulate nickel on corals and their microbiome
The data describes the microbiome community of the coral Acropora muricata following exposure to dissolved nickel, nickel contaminanted sediments and sediments alone for 7 days under controlled laboratory conditions
Environmental Sciences not elsewhere classified
Amplicon libraries were prepared for sequencing using TruSeq PCR-free kit. The libraries were run as two separate Illumina® Miseq sequencing runs, 2x 300 bp for ITS2 rDNA, 2x 250bp for 16SrDNA and 2x 150bp for 18SrDNA. Sequenced data were processed using a custom pipeline (Greenfield Hybrid Amplicon Pipeline, GHAP) which is based on USEARCH tools (Edgar, 2013). The pipeline is available at https://doi.org/10.4225/08/59f98560eba25.
