The EMP Working Group has carried out DNA extractions, sequencing, data handling, analysis, and manuscript preparation. These individuals are co-authors on the primary manuscript (Thompson et al., in review) describing a meta-analysis of the EMP dataset.

The EMP Consortium includes principal investigators and scientists who were involved with the individual studies that make up the EMP. These individuals conceived of sampling regimes, collected samples, provided sample metadata, and published manuscripts about individual studies (referenced here).

Names of individuals and institutions are listed in alphabetical order.
