Permafrost contains one of the least known soil microbiomes, where microbial populations reside in an ice-locked environment. Here, 56 prokaryotic metagenome-assembled genome (MAG) sequences from 13 phyla are reported. These MAGs will provide information on metabolic pathways that could mediate biogeochemical cycles in Svalbard permafrost.
