Table 1 Analyzed Biomes, classified by soil or water type, with information about the region, number of reads, average read length, sequencing technology used and sequencing project SRA code and link

From: Biogeographical distribution analysis of hydrocarbon degrading and biosurfactant producing genes suggests that near-equatorial biomes have higher abundance of genes with potential for bioremediation
