    We are presently (2015) evaluating new sets of sequence data for publication, of which an important part were produced within the DCO deep life program. DNA was again extracted from new samples of groundwater and biofilms collected from the URLs Äspö) and Onkalo for diversity analysis. The samples were analyzed with 454 pyrotag sequencing of 16S rDNA either by the Marine Biological Laboratory (Woods Hole, MA, USA) or by Eurofins mwg operon, Germany. Two of the biofilms from Äspö HRL were metgenome sequenced on an Illumina platform at the Swedish National Genomics Infrastructure within SciLifeLab.
