Non-symbiotic Bradyrhizobium ecotypes dominate North American forest soils
The genus Bradyrhizobium has served as a model system for studying host–microbe symbiotic interactions and nitrogen fixation due to its importance in agricultural productivity and global nitrogenExpand

Genomic properties of Marine Group A bacteria indicate a role in the marine sulfur cycle
Marine Group A (MGA) is a deeply branching and uncultivated phylum of bacteria. Although their functional roles remain elusive, MGA subgroups are particularly abundant and diverse in oxygen minimumExpand

Forest harvesting reduces the soil metagenomic potential for biomass decomposition
Soil is the key resource that must be managed to ensure sustainable forest productivity. Soil microbial communities mediate numerous essential ecosystem functions, and recent studies show that forestExpand

Long-term effects of timber harvesting on hemicellulolytic microbial populations in coniferous forest soils
Forest ecosystems need to be sustainably managed, as they are major reservoirs of biodiversity, provide important economic resources and modulate global climate. We have a poor knowledge ofExpand

Early-Life Antibiotics Attenuate Regulatory T Cell Generation and Increase the Severity of Murine House Dust Mite-Induced Asthma
IntroductionEarly-life exposure to antibiotics (ABX) has been linked to increases in asthma severity and prevalence in both children and laboratory animals. We explored the immunologic mechanismsExpand
