The file “Fla.fasta”, comprising 10526 positions, is the concatenated amino acid alignments of 51 orthologues of 182 bacterial strains. It was used for the maximum likelihood and maximum parsimony analyses of Flavobacteriales. Bacterial species names and strains were used as the sequence names, host names of insect endosymbionts were shown in brackets. The file “16S.fasta” is the alignment of 233 bacterial 16S rRNA sequences. It contains 1455 positions and was used for the maximum likelihood analysis of flavobacterial insect endosymbionts. The names of endosymbiont strains were replaced by the name of their hosts. In addition to the species names, National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) accession numbers were also indicated in the sequence names (e.g., sequence “Cicadellidae_Deltocephalinae_Macrostelini_Macrosteles_striifrons_AB795320” is the 16S rRNA of Macrosteles striifrons (Cicadellidae: Deltocephalinae: Macrostelini) with a NCBI accession number AB795320). The file “Sulcia_pep.fasta” is the concatenated amino acid alignments of 131 orthologues of “Candidatus Sulcia muelleri” (Sulcia). It contains 41970 positions and presents 101 Sulcia strains and 3 Blattabacterium strains. This file was used for the maximum likelihood analysis of Sulcia. The file “Sulcia_nucleotide.fasta” is the concatenated nucleotide alignment corresponding to the sequences in “Sulcia_pep.fasta” but also comprises the alignment of 16S rRNA. It has 127339 positions and was used for the maximum likelihood and maximum parsimony analyses of Sulcia. Individual gene alignments (16S rRNA and 131 orthologues of Sulcia and Blattabacterium) are deposited in the compressed file “individual_gene_alignments.zip”, which were used to construct gene trees for multispecies coalescent analysis. The names of Sulcia strains were replaced by the name of their hosts in “Sulcia_pep.fasta”, “Sulcia_nucleotide.fasta” and the files in “individual_gene_alignments.zip”. In all the alignment files, gaps are indicated by “-”.

*Updates for this V3: added a few more records and rearranged the sequence of the tables in order to support our new paper "Evaluation of Indirect and Direct Scoring Methods to Relate Biochemical Soil Quality Indicators to Ecosystem Services" accepted by the Soil Science Society of America Journal. We summarize peer reviewed literature reporting associations between for three soil quality indicators (SQIs) (β-glucosidase (BG), fluorescein diacetate (FDA) hydrolysis, and permanganate oxidizable carbon (POXC)) and crop yield and greenhouse gas emissions. Peer-reviewed articles published between January of 1990 and May 2018 were searched using the Thomas Reuters Web of Science database (Thomas Reuters, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) and Google Scholar to identify studies reporting results for: “β-glucosidase”, “permanganate oxidizable carbon”, “active carbon”, “readily oxidizable carbon”, or “fluorescein diacetate hydrolysis”, together with one or more of the following: “crop yield”, “productivity”, “greenhouse gas’, “CO2”, “CH4”, or “N2O”. Meta-data for records include the following descriptor variables and covariates useful for scoring function development: 1) identifying factors for the study site (location, duration of the experiment), 2) soil textural class, pH, and SOC, 3) depth of soil sampling, 4) units used in published works (i.e.: equivalent mass, concentration), 5) SQI abundances and measured ecosystem functions, and 6) summary statistics for correlation between SQIs and functions (yield and greenhouse gas emissions). *Note: Blank values in tables are considered unreported data.

These data were collected in 2018 and 2019 at the University of Illinois Energy Farm (N 40.063607, W 88.206926). During each growing season, bulk and rhizosphere soil were collected from replicate Sorghum bicolor nitrogen use efficiency trial plots at three separate time points (approximately July 1, August 1, and September 1). We measured soil moisture, pH, soil nitrate and ammonium, potential nitrification, potential denitrification, and extracted and sequenced the V4 region of the 16S rRNA gene for microbial community analysis. All microbial sequence data is archived in the National Center for Biotechnology Information’s (NCBI) Sequence Read Archive (accession number SRP326979, project number PRJNA741261).

Shared dataset consists of 16S sequencing data of microbial communities. Each community is composed of heterotrophic bacteria derived from one of two soil samples and the model algae Chlamydomonas reinhardtii. Each comunity was placed in a materially closed environment with an initial supply of carbon in the media and subjected to light-dark cycles. The closed microbial ecosystems (CES) survived via carbon cycling. Each CES was subjected to rounds of dilution, after which the community was sequenced (data provided here). The shared dataset allowed us to conclude that CES consistently self-assembled to cycle carbon (data not provided) via conserved metabolic capabilites (data not provided) dispite differences in taxonomic composition (data provided). --------------------------- Naming convention: [soil sample = A or B][CES replicate = 1,2,3, or 4]_[round number = 1,2,3,or 4]_[reverse read = R or forward read = F]_filt.fastq Example -- A1_r1_F_filt.fastq means soil sample A, CES replicate 1, end of round1, forward read

This dataset contains re-estimated gene trees from the ASTRAL-II [1] simulated datasets. The re-estimated variants of the datasets are called MC6H and MC11H -- they are derived from the MC6 and MC11 conditions from the original data (the MC6 and MC11 names are given by ASTRID [2]). The uploaded files contain the sequence alignments (half-length their original alignments), and the re-estimated species trees using FastTree2. Note: - "mc6h.tar.gz" and "mc11h.tar.gz" contain the sequence alignments and the re-estimated gene trees for the two conditions - the sequence alignments are in the format "all-genes.phylip.splitted.[i].half" where i means that this alignment is for the i-th alignment of the original dataset, but truncating the alignment halving its length - "g1000.trees" under each replicate contains the newline-separated re-estimated gene trees. The gene trees were estimated from the above described alignments using FastTree2 (version 2.1.11) command "FastTree -nt -gtr" [1]: Mirarab, S., & Warnow, T. (2015).

Bigheaded carp were collected from the Illinois and Des Plaines Rivers, parts of the Illinois Waterway, from May to November 2018. A total of 93 fish were collected during sampling for a study comprised of 40 females, 41 males, and 12 unsexed fish. GC/MS metabolite profiling analysis detected 180 compounds. Livers from carp at the leading edge had differences in energy use and metabolism, and suppression of protective mechanisms relative to downstream fish; differences were consistent across time. This body of work provides evidence that water quality is linked to carp movement in the Illinois River. As water quality in this region continues to improve, consideration of this impact on carp spread is essential to protect the Great Lakes.
