Metagenomics analysis of groundwater, surface water, and sand samples at Jeorse Park in East Chicago, Indiana, 2017
This dataset provides results of a targeted bacterial community metagenomic analysis of surface water, groundwater, and sand samples at Jeorse Park on Lake Michigan in East Chicago, Indiana. Seventy-two samples were collected from 6 sites in 2017. Samples were analyzed for the 16S ribosomal RNA (16S rRNA) gene (the S in 16S refers to the rate of sedimentation, in Svedberg units, of the RNA molecule in a centrifugal field), and one sample was excluded because it produced too few reads. The 16S rRNA gene is the most conserved of three rRNA genes (16S, 23S, and 5S) and is considered the most reliable for identification and taxonomic classification of bacterial species (Bouchet and others, 2008). Taxonomic analysis...
Groundwater and surface-water samples were collected and analyzed for microbial source tracking markers to identify the primary sources of fecal bacteria at a Lake Michigan beach in Northwestern Indiana.
Phytoplankton taxonomy, abundance, and biovolume from two urban beaches on Southern and Western Lake Michigan, 2016-2017
This dataset describes the identification of phytoplankton to the lowest taxonomic level (typically species), as well as abundance (density) and biovolume from grab samples collected from Lake Michigan at Jackson Park at Hyde Park, Illinois and Lake Michigan at Jeorse Park at Gary, Indiana.
