Abstract: Microorganisms in the deep-sea environments such as hydrothermal vent and cold-seep regions are primary energy producers and an important community in these ecosystems. We have used 454-Pyrosequencing and 16S rDNA clone library methods to determine the diversity of bacteria in the sediment of the seep regions around the vestimentiferan tubeworm habitat at Kagoshima Bay. Taxonomic composition from both libraries suggested that 454-Pyrosequencing methods can represent more diverse groups than the conventional clone library methods. Most abundant taxa with higher folds were Proteobacteria and Bacteroidetes found in both methods. Through the 454-Pyrosequencing method, we were able to detect underrepresented taxa as well as non-detectable taxa. This analyses and comparison provide bacterial taxonomic group detection efficiency of both library types and emphasize the different uses and utilities for exploring the unknown microbial domain.
