This dataset contains .txt (tab delimited) files of OTU (operational taxonomic units) classifications for bacteria at iUTAH GAMUT sites in three watersheds in September 2014. Briefly, water column samples were filtered on 0.2 um membrane filters, which were dissolved and processed with MOBIO Power Soil DNA extraction kits. We used bacterial specific PCR-amplified 16S rDNA and 454-pyrosequencing, and then MOTHUR to generate OTU classifications.

Data Processing Method Sequences have been processed using MOTHUR (Schloss et al. 2009).
Data Collection Method Streamwater aseptically vacuum filtered in the field or lab using autoclaved Nalgene filter cups and 47 mm 0.2 um membrane filters, were stored on dry ice or liquid nitrogen until extracted with MoBIO PowerMax Soil DNA kits. PCR-amplified 16S rDNA samples were sequenced using BYU’s DNA Sequencing Center (454-Pyrosequencing or Hi-Seq).
