BackgroundMangroves are ecologically and economically important forests of the tropics. As one of the most carbon-rich biomes, mangroves account for 11% of the total input of terrestrial carbon into oceans. Although viruses are considered to significantly influence local and global biogeochemical cycles, little information is available regarding the community structure, genetic diversity and ecological roles of viruses in mangrove ecosystems.MethodsHere, we utilised viral metagenomics…

Distribution of soil viruses across China and their potential role in phosphorous metabolism
Background Viruses are the most abundant biological entities on the planet and drive biogeochemical cycling on a global scale. Our understanding of biogeography of soil viruses and their ecological
Diversity and potential biogeochemical impacts of viruses in bulk and rhizosphere soils.
TLDR
Results demonstrate that virus-encoded putative auxiliary metabolic genes (AMGs) or metabolic genes that may change bacterial metabolism and indirectly contribute to biogeochemical cycling, especially carbon cycling, in agricultural soil.
Distribution Characteristics of Soil Viruses Under Different Precipitation Gradients on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau
Viruses are extremely abundant in the soil environment and have potential roles in impacting on microbial population, evolution, and nutrient biogeochemical cycles. However, how environment and
RNA-viromics reveals diverse communities of soil RNA viruses with the potential to affect grassland ecosystems across multiple trophic levels
TLDR
Soil RNA viral communities along an altitudinal productivity gradient of peat, managed grassland and coastal soils are characterised, suggesting members of this clade of plant viruses may be far more widely distributed and diverse than previously thought.
Minnesota peat viromes reveal terrestrial and aquatic niche partitioning for local and global viral populations
TLDR
The significant enrichment of aquatic-like vOTUs in more waterlogged peat suggests that viruses may also exhibit niche partitioning on more local scales, and the substantially higher per-sample vOTU recovery after viral particle enrichment highlights the utility of soil viromics.
Novel virocell metabolic potential revealed in agricultural soils by virus-enriched soil metagenome analysis.
TLDR
Analysis of metagenomes of community-level virus-enriched suspensions by tangential flow filtration obtained from two French agricultural soils revealed novel virocell metabolic potential with implications to virus-host interactions, carbon cycling, plant-beneficial functions in the rhizosphere, horizontal gene transfer and other relevant microbial strategies applied to survive in soils.

TLDR
This study filled in the knowledge gaps on the virome of the hadal sediment habitats and provided insight into the evolution and the potential metabolic functions of theHadal sediment virome.
Novel Viral Communities Potentially Assisting in Carbon, Nitrogen, and Sulfur Metabolism in the Upper Slope Sediments of Mariana Trench

Assessing the Diversity and Specificity of Two Freshwater Viral Communities through Metagenomics
TLDR
The two freshwater viromes appear closely related, despite the significant ecological differences between the two lakes, and appear genetically distinct from other aquatic ecosystems, demonstrating the specificity of freshwater viruses at a community scale for the first time.
Ecogenomics and potential biogeochemical impacts of globally abundant ocean viruses
TLDR
A global map of abundant, double-stranded DNA viruses complete with genomic and ecological contexts is presented to present a necessary foundation for the meaningful integration of viruses into ecosystem models where they act as key players in nutrient cycling and trophic networks.
Analysis of metagenomic data reveals common features of halophilic viral communities across continents.
TLDR
Hypersaline viral communities around the world appear to form a genetically consistent community that are likely to harbour new genes coding for enzymes specifically adapted to these environments, according to metagenomics approach.
Exploring the diversity of bacterial communities in sediments of urban mangrove forests.
TLDR
Analysis of sediment samples by means of denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE) of 16S rRNA gene fragments suggested that the overall bacterial diversity was not significantly affected by the different levels of hydrocarbon pollution at each sampling site, but sequence analyses provided evidences that each mangrove sediment displayed a specific structure bacterial community.
Metagenomic analysis of the viral community in Namib Desert hypoliths.
TLDR
The composition of the viral hypolith fraction containing many Bacillus-infecting phages was not completely consistent with Namib hypolith phylotypic surveys of the bacterial hosts, in which the cyanobacterial genus Chroococcidiopsis was found to be dominant.
Dynamics of Viral Abundance and Diversity in a Sphagnum-Dominated Peatland: Temporal Fluctuations Prevail Over Habitat
TLDR
It is suggested that temporal variations of environmental conditions rather than current habitat differences control the dynamics of virus-host interactions in Sphagnum-dominated peatlands.
The Microbiome of Brazilian Mangrove Sediments as Revealed by Metagenomics
TLDR
A deep metagenomic survey that revealed the taxonomic and potential metabolic pathways aspects of mangrove sediment microbiology revealed that the microbial core involved in methane, nitrogen, and sulphur metabolism consists mainly of Burkholderiaceae, Planctomycetaceae, Rhodobacteraceae, and Desulfobacteria.
Abundance and Diversity of Viruses in Six Delaware Soils
TLDR
Land use is a significant factor influencing viral abundance and diversity in soils, as were soil organic matter and water content, and the reciprocal Simpson's index suggests that forest soils harbor more diverse assemblages of viruses, particularly in terms of morphological distribution.
Recovery of novel bacterial diversity from mangrove sediment
TLDR
The results significantly expand the knowledge of the bacterial diversity of the unique mangrove environment and reveal a diversity of sequences that were mostly novel.
Virioplankton: Viruses in Aquatic Ecosystems
TLDR
Novel applications of molecular genetic techniques have provided good evidence that viral infection can significantly influence the composition and diversity of aquatic microbial communities, supporting the hypothesis that viruses play a significant role in microbial food webs.
