This Whole Genome Shotgun project has been deposited at DDBJ/EMBL/GenBank under accession number 32089. 454 pyrosequencing reads have been deposited in the NCBI Short Read Archive. Nearly full-length 16S rRNA gene sequences are deposited in GenBank under the accession numbers FJ362604-FJ372382. Annotated sequences are also available for further analysis in MG-RAST (

Additional supplemental fasta files can be found here, including our preprocessed and labeled V2 and V6 16S rRNA gene sequencing datasets along with obesity-associated protein sequences from E.rectale, E.eligens, B.theta3731, B.theta7330, and B.WH2.
