Marine microbes have evolved to live along extreme environmental gradients, whether at the microscale, in proximity to particles or over the entire water column. Using community genomics, DeLong et al. highlight deduced biological differences that result from open-ocean depth gradients. The power of the large-insert libraries used is that both phylogeny and function can be inferred from the genetic material obtained--even for uncultured microbes. Together with complete genomes of marine… CONTINUE READING
