Methane metabolism in the archaeal phylum Bathyarchaeota revealed by genome-centric metagenomics
Methane cycling gets more diverse The production and consumption of methane by microorganisms play a major role in the global carbon cycle. Although these processes can occur in a range ofExpand

Methylotrophic methanogenesis discovered in the archaeal phylum Verstraetearchaeota
Methanogenesis is the primary biogenic source of methane in the atmosphere and a key contributor to climate change. The long-standing dogma that methanogenesis originated within the Euryarchaeota wasExpand

16S ribosomal DNA-directed PCR primers for ruminal methanogens and identification of methanogens colonising young lambs.
The population densities and identities of methanogens colonising new-born lambs in a grazing flock were determined from rumen samples collected at regular intervals after birth. MethanogenExpand

Analysis of Methanogen Diversity in the Rumen Using Temporal Temperature Gradient Gel Electrophoresis: Identification of Uncultured Methanogens
A temporal temperature gradient gel electrophoresis (TTGE) method was developed to determine the diversity of methanogen populations in the rumen. Tests with amplicons from genomic DNA from 12Expand

Genome-centric view of carbon processing in thawing permafrost
As global temperatures rise, large amounts of carbon sequestered in permafrost are becoming available for microbial degradation. Accurate prediction of carbon gas emissions from thawing permafrost isExpand

Community Composition and Density of Methanogens in the Foregut of the Tammar Wallaby (Macropus eugenii)
ABSTRACT The composition of the methanogenic archaeal community in the foregut contents of Tammar wallabies (Macropus eugenii) was studied using 16S rRNA and methyl coenzyme reductase subunit AExpand

An evolving view of methane metabolism in the Archaea
Methane is a key compound in the global carbon cycle that influences both nutrient cycling and the Earth’s climate. A limited number of microorganisms control the flux of biologically generatedExpand

Methanotrophy across a natural permafrost thaw environment
The fate of carbon sequestered in permafrost is a key concern for future global warming as this large carbon stock is rapidly becoming a net methane source due to widespread thaw. Methane releaseExpand

Genome-Centric Analysis of Microbial Populations Enriched by Hydraulic Fracture Fluid Additives in a Coal Bed Methane Production Well
Coal bed methane (CBM) is generated primarily through the microbial degradation of coal. Despite a limited understanding of the microorganisms responsible for this process, there is significantExpand
