Library of NZ Soil DNA

To date, no comprehensive effort has yet been made to catalogue New Zealand’s critical soil microbial resource. Our baseline microbial data, collated from the analysis of 2,000+ samples will provide unprecedented insights into the distribution of key microbial taxa across New Zealand’s native and production landscapes. Combined extensive and intensive approaches to sampling are allowing us to generate the most detailed map detailing the distribution of soil microbial taxa across the country.
