Deep-sequencing technologies are becoming nearly routine to describe microbial community composition in environmental samples. The 18S ribosomal DNA (rDNA) pyrosequencing has revealed a vast diversity of infrequent sequences, leading to the proposition of the existence of an extremely diverse microbial ‘rare biosphere’. Although rare microbes no doubt exist, critical views suggest that many rare sequences may actually be artifacts. However, information about how diversity revealed by molecular… CONTINUE READING
