Abstract

In this project, we study how the meta-transcriptome change upon rewetting a dry soil that has a low or high in fertility. Mesocosms have been exposed to either every day watering or watering once a week as well as a high and low N fertilization treatment over an 8 week period, where after the soil is sampled before and 2h after a rewetting event. The hypothesis is that there will be increased up-regulation of metabolic pathways and N cycling post-rewet compared to pre-rewet. I would like to move project b2016339 to Rackham
