16S rRNA deep sequencing analysis, targeting V3 region was performed using Illumina bar coded sequencing. Sediment samples from two hot springs (Atri and Taptapani) were collected. Atri and Taptapani metagenomes were classified into 50 and 51 bacterial phyla. Proteobacteria (45.17%) dominated the Taptapani sample metagenome followed by Bacteriodetes (23.43%) and Cyanobacteria (10.48%) while in the Atri sample, Chloroflexi (52.39%), Nitrospirae (10.93%) and Proteobacteria (9.98%) dominated. A large number of sequences remained taxonomically unresolved in both hot springs, indicating the presence of potentially novel microbes in these two unique habitats thus unraveling the importance of the current study. Metagenome sequence information is now available at NCBI, SRA database accession no. SRP057428.
