Soil samples were collected from a representative arsenic (As) contaminated region under phytoremediation of hyperaccumulation plants. Relative abundance and diversity of microbial communities in the soil samples were characterized via 16S rRNA genes sequencing. At the phylum level, Proteobacteria, Actinobacteria, Acidobacteria, Bacteroidetes, Gemmatimonadetes and Firmicutes shows the highest abundance, accounting for more than 90 % of the classified sequences in the soil samples.
