This study analyzed seasonal patterns of bacterial diversity and community composition in the Laurentian Great Lakes (U.S.) by collecting and analyzing nearly 25 water samples from a research transect of Lake Michigan developed by the Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory. The results indicate that bacterial community composition shifts spatially and temporally along estutuary-to-pelagic gradients in Lake Michigan.
