[MIS03-10] Carbon and nitrogen transformation and their driving microorganisms in paddy soil, as assessed by meta-transcriptomics
Keywords:soil microbial communities, metatranscriptome, bioinformatics, paddy soil, CN cycle
We carried out meta-transcriptomic analysis of oxidized and reduced soils collected from Niigata paddy field during rice cultivation period. Whole microbial communities, quantity and diversity of transcriptome involved in carbon and nitrogen transformation in the soils were investigated by rRNA and mRNA analyses. Active microbial communities, possible carbon and nitrogen transformation, microbial players involved in the transformation, and their temporal transition in the paddy soil will be reported.
