Cool destinations (polar exploration): EBI Metagenomics

The Arctic has become a popular destination for tourists who go to see the unique landscapes and animals3. Microorganisms are also an important part of this environment and contribute to global biodiversity.


Hunt for the study on ‘arctic winter marine ecosystem’ in the EBI Metagenomics portal.  What proportion of the prokaryotic community in arctic winter marine ecosystems is made up of archaea (to the nearest whole percent)?

About EBI Metagenomics

EBI metagenomics is a freely available hub for the analysis and exploration of metagenomic, metatranscriptomic, amplicon and assembly datasets. The resource provides rich functional and taxonomic analyses of user-submitted sequences, as well as analysis of publicly available metagenomic datasets held within the European Nucleotide Archive. It is one of the largest metagenomics data repositories in the world.

You can learn more about EBI metagenomics in our webinar EBI Metagenomics: analysing and exploring metagenomics data.
