Dataset Information


Bambara groundnut soil metagenomics data.

ABSTRACT: Metagenomics analysis was carried out on extracted DNA of Rhizospheric soil samples from Bambara groundnut. This dataset presented reports on the bacterial communities at the different growth stages of Bambara groundnut and the bulk soil. Paired-end Illumina-Miseq sequencing of 16S rRNA genes was carried on the soil samples of the bacterial community with the phyla dominated by Actinobacteria (30.1%), Proteobacteria (22%), Acidobacteria (20.9%), Bacteroides (8.4%), Chloroflex (4.5%) and Firmicutes (4.4%) in all the soil samples. Samples from the bulk soil had the least average percent phyla, while samples at seed maturity stage had the highest average percent phyla. The alpha diversity at p?=?0.05 was highest at this stage compared to the others and the control. Rubrobacter was the most predominant genera, after which is Acidobacterium and Skermanella. The biodiversity profile generated from the metagenomics analysis is useful in increasing knowledge of the drought-tolerance ability of Bambara groundnut. The data generated can be used to compare bacterial diversity at different growth stages of plants.
