Table 2 Nitrogen metabolism gene matches and the number of sequences from the +NO 3 - metagenome that matched with the genes, as determined with a BLASTN comparison

From: Shotgun metagenomic analysis of metabolic diversity and microbial community structure in experimental vernal pools subjected to nitrate pulse
