Environmental Genome Shotgun Sequencing of the Sargasso Sea
TLDR
Over 1.2 million previously unknown genes represented in these samples, including more than 782 new rhodopsin-like photoreceptors are identified, suggesting substantial oceanic microbial diversity. Expand
The Sorcerer II Global Ocean Sampling Expedition: Northwest Atlantic through Eastern Tropical Pacific
TLDR
A metagenomic study of the marine planktonic microbiota in which surface (mostly marine) water samples were analyzed as part of the Sorcerer II Global Ocean Sampling expedition, which yielded an extensive dataset consisting of 7.7 million sequencing reads. Expand
Genome sequence of the human malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum
TLDR
The genome sequence of P. falciparum clone 3D7 is reported, which is the most (A + T)-rich genome sequenced to date and is being exploited in the search for new drugs and vaccines to fight malaria. Expand
DNA sequence of both chromosomes of the cholera pathogen Vibrio cholerae
TLDR
The V. cholerae genomic sequence provides a starting point for understanding how a free-living, environmental organism emerged to become a significant human bacterial pathogen. Expand
Complete genome sequence and comparative analysis of the metabolically versatile Pseudomonas putida KT2440.
Pseudomonas putida is a metabolically versatile saprophytic soil bacterium that has been certified as a biosafety host for the cloning of foreign genes. The bacterium also has considerable potentialExpand
Insights into the phylogeny and coding potential of microbial dark matter
TLDR
This study applies single-cell genomics to target and sequence 201 archaeal and bacterial cells from nine diverse habitats belonging to 29 major mostly uncharted branches of the tree of life and provides a systematic step towards a better understanding of biological evolution on the authors' planet. Expand
Complete Genome Sequence of a Virulent Isolate of Streptococcus pneumoniae
TLDR
A motif identified within the signal peptide of proteins is potentially involved in targeting these proteins to the cell surface of low–guanine/cytosine Gram-positive species. Expand
Role of Mobile DNA in the Evolution of Vancomycin-Resistant Enterococcus faecalis
TLDR
The complete genome sequence of Enterococcus faecalisV583, a vancomycin-resistant clinical isolate, revealed that more than a quarter of the genome consists of probable mobile or foreign DNA, which probably contributed to the rapid acquisition and dissemination of drug resistance in the enterococci. Expand
Structure, variation, and assembly of the root-associated microbiomes of rice
TLDR
Dynamic changes observed during microbiome acquisition, as well as steady-state compositions of spatial compartments, support a multistep model for root microbiome assembly from soil wherein the rhizoplane plays a selective gating role. Expand
Phylogenomics of the Reproductive Parasite Wolbachia pipientis wMel: A Streamlined Genome Overrun by Mobile Genetic Elements
TLDR
Genetic analysis of the wMel genome further supports the hypothesis that mitochondria share a common ancestor with the α-Proteobacteria, but shows little support for the grouping of mitochondria with species in the order Rickettsiales. Expand
