De novo metagenomic assembly reveals abundant novel major lineage of Archaea in hypersaline microbial communities
This study describes reconstruction of two highly unusual archaeal genomes by de novo metagenomic assembly of multiple, deeply sequenced libraries from surface waters of Lake Tyrrell (LT), a hypersaline lake in NW Victoria, Australia. Lineage-specific probes were designed using the assembled genomes to visualize these novel archaea, which were highly abundant in the 0.1-0.8 m size fraction of lake water samples. Gene content and inferred metabolic capabilities were highly dissimilar to all...[Show more]
