A communal catalogue reveals Earth’s multiscale microbial diversity
TLDR
A meta-analysis of microbial community samples collected by hundreds of researchers for the Earth Microbiome Project is presented, creating both a reference database giving global context to DNA sequence data and a framework for incorporating data from future studies, fostering increasingly complete characterization of Earth’s microbial diversity.

Antimicrobial properties of resident coral mucus bacteria of Oculina patagonica.
TLDR
The inhibitory properties of the microbial community of the coral mucus from the Mediterranean coral Oculina patagonica were examined and support the concept of a probiotic effect on microbial communities associated with the coral holobiont. Expand
Ocean acidification shows negligible impacts on high-latitude bacterial community structure in coastal pelagic mesocosms
TLDR
The community was significantly different between the fjord and both the control and elevated 2 mesocosms after nutrients were added to the mesocsms; suggesting that the addition of nutrients is the primary driver of the change in mesocOSm community structure. Expand
Effect of elevated CO 2 on the dynamics of particle-attached and free-living bacterioplankton communities in an Arctic fjord
TLDR
Despite lower cell numbers and extracellular enzyme activities in the post-bloom phase, bacterial protein production was enhanced in high CO2-treatments, suggesting a positive effect of community richness on this function and on carbon cycling by bacteria. Expand
Coccolithovirus facilitation of carbon export in the North Atlantic
TLDR
These findings reveal viral infection as a previously unrecognized ecosystem process enhancing biological pump efficiency and a coupling between viral infection of an Emiliania huxleyi bloom and the export of organic and inorganic carbon from the photic zone. Expand
Draft Genome Sequence of Four Coccolithoviruses: Emiliania huxleyi Virus EhV-88, EhV-201, EhV-207, and EhV-208
TLDR
The genomic features of four newly sequenced coccolithoviruses are described together with their draft genome sequences and their annotations, highlighting the homology and heterogeneity of these genomes to the EhV-86 model reference genome. Expand
Dynamics of transparent exopolymer particle production and aggregation during viral infection of the coccolithophore, Emiliania huxleyi
TLDR
Significant increases in TEP are shown during early phase EhV207-infection of calcifying strains and a shift towards large aggregates following EhV99B1- Infection, suggesting that other exopolymer substances contribute towards aggregation. Expand
Coccolithoviruses: A Review of Cross-Kingdom Genomic Thievery and Metabolic Thuggery
TLDR
It is suggested that a gene-by-gene investigation approach may be more useful when the goal is to reveal differences related to functionally important genes, contributing to the idea that a significant portion of the gene flow in the planktonic world inter-crosses the domains of life. Expand
Draft genome sequence of the coccolithovirus EhV-84
TLDR
The structural and genomic features of Emiliania huxleyi virus 84 are described, together with a near complete draft genome sequence and its annotation and this is the fourth genome sequence of a member of the coccolithovirus family. Expand
Draft Genome Sequence of the Coccolithovirus Emiliania huxleyi Virus 202
TLDR
The genomic features of Emiliania huxleyi virus 202 are described, together with a draft genome sequence and its annotation, highlighting the homology and heterogeneity of this genome in comparison with the EhV-86 reference genome. Expand
