Soil fungal database


  Soil microbes play an important role in the managementof soil environment. They form various microbial communities in response to environmental factors, including soil texture and chemical components. Because of this, it is difficult to determine the microbial community structure of soil. Now, we survey comprehensively fungal communities in plum garden soils (cultivating Prunusmume) by using pyrosequencing technology.
  Briefly, fungal DNA was directly extracted from the soil samples on June, August, November and February, 2010 to 2012. The nucleotide sequences of fungal internal transcribed spacer 1 (ITS 1) region were assessed using pyrosequencingwith GS FLX.
This database will provide new scientific information to you. We are happy that our database helps you build new ideas and strategies for soil management to improve quality ofcrops, cereals, and fruits.
