Watson, Mick. (2018). Assembly of 913 microbial genomes from metagenomic sequencing of the cow rumen, [dataset]. The Roslin Institute and Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies. University of Edinburgh. https://doi.org/10.7488/ds/2296.
This dataset represents 913 draft bacterial and archaeal genomes assembled from over 800 gigabases of rumen metagenomic sequence data derived from 43 Scottish cattle, using both metagenomic binning and Hi-C-based proximity-guided assembly. Most of these genomes represent previously unsequenced strains and species. The draft genomes contain over 1.2 million predicted protein sequences, and 69,000 proteins predicted to be involved in carbohydrate metabolism.
## Relation to earlier versions ##
This data is referenced by Watson et al. (In Submission). A previous paper, in bioRXiv, referenced the earlier dataset "Assembly of hundreds of microbial genomes from the cow rumen reveals novel microbial species encoding enzymes with roles in carbohydrate metabolism" https://datashare.is.ed.ac.uk/handle/10283/2772. This in turn was superseded by the more recent version Hi-C genomes from "Assembly of hundreds of microbial genomes from the cow rumen reveals novel microbial species encoding enzymes with roles in carbohydrate metabolism"
https://datashare.is.ed.ac.uk/handle/10283/2911. The paper underwent many rounds of review, the first-round revised paper referenced the second (Hi-C) dataset and the final, accepted version will reference the DOI of this dataset. The datasets changed in nature and in name during this process.
