Present and future global distributions of the marine Cyanobacteria Prochlorococcus and Synechococcus
TLDR
The global niche models suggest that oceanic microbial communities will experience complex changes as a result of projected future climate conditions, and these changes may have large impacts on ocean ecosystems and biogeochemical cycles. Expand
Microbial production of recalcitrant dissolved organic matter: long-term carbon storage in the global ocean
TLDR
The microbial carbon pump is proposed as a conceptual framework to address the important, multifaceted biogeochemical problem of fixed carbon in the upper ocean. Expand
Novel lineages of Prochlorococcus and Synechococcus in the global oceans
TLDR
It is demonstrated that oceanic systems contain a large pool of diverse picocyanobacteria, and further suggest that new genotypes or ecotypes of picocianobacteria will continue to emerge, as microbial consortia are explored with advanced sequencing technology. Expand
Distinct distribution pattern of abundance and diversity of aerobic anoxygenic phototrophic bacteria in the global ocean.
TLDR
The results suggest that AAPB abundance and diversity follow opposite trends from oligotrophic to eutrophic regimes in the ocean, and the Indian Ocean contained relatively high AAPB% compared with the other two oceans, corresponding to the high primary production in this region. Expand
Bacterial diversity in the snow over Tibetan Plateau Glaciers
TLDR
Bacterial diversity was unexpectedly high in the snow habitats of the world’s highest plateau, with 15 common genera distributed widely among the glaciers, according to culture-independent molecular analysis of 16S rRNA gene clone library and flow cytometry approaches. Expand
Genome sequences of siphoviruses infecting marine Synechococcus unveil a diverse cyanophage group and extensive phage-host genetic exchanges.
TLDR
This study revealed that cyanosiphovirus genes involved in DNA metabolism and replication share high sequence homology with those in cyanobacteria, and further phylogenetic analysis based on these genes suggests that ancient and selective genetic exchanges occurred, possibly due to past prophage integration.

Dynamics of autotrophic picoplankton and heterotrophic bacteria in the East China Sea
TLDR
The key limiting factor for the coastward distribution of Prochlorococcus in the East China Sea were considered to be the movements of the Kuroshio Current and the Taiwan Warm Water Currents year around, temperature in winter and freshwater input in summer. Expand
Drivers shaping the diversity and biogeography of total and active bacterial communities in the South China Sea
TLDR
The results indicated that the biogeographic distribution of bacteria in the SCS is the result of both environmental control and distance decay. Expand
Contribution of major bacterial groups to bacterial biomass production along a salinity gradient in the South China Sea
TLDR
At the singlebacterial group level, a statistically significant correlation between abundance and leucine- uptake activity was observed for beta-proteobacteria, suggesting that the relative abundance of beta- proteobacteria in bacterioplankton communities was controlled by growth-related processes.
