Abstract

We present the Genomic Standards Consortium’s (GSC) “Minimum Information about an ENvironmental Sequence” (MIENS) standard for describing marker genes. Adoption of MIENS will enhance our ability to analyze natural genetic diversity across the Tree of Life as it is currently being documented by massive DNA sequencing efforts from myriad ecosystems in our ever-changing biospher
