Scientists from Canada and Australia studied how climate change may be affecting microbial communities by performing metagenomic and 16S rRNA gene analysis of bacteria collected from Arctic sea ice and nearby sea water. The different habitats harbored very different microbial populations. Metagenomic sequencing was performed with the Ion Torrent PGM after size selection with the Pippin Prep system.
