NEON to Adopt Community Standards for Soil Microbe Samples

November 18, 2010

NEON will adopt the "Minimum Information about an ENvironmental Sequence" (MIENS) specification for metadata associated with soil genomes.  The MIENS document advances the Genomic Standards Consortium (GSC) mission to implement standardized metadata collection and analysis efforts in genomics.   More information about the GSC can be found on their web site http://gensc.org.
