Our previously published research was one of the pioneering studies on the use of metagenomics to directly compare taxonomic and metabolic properties of aquatic microorganisms from different filter size-fractions. We compared size-fractionated water samples representing free-living and particle-attached communities from four diverse habitats in the Columbia River coastal margin, analyzing 12 metagenomes consisting of >5 million sequence reads (>1.6 Gbp). With predicted peptide and rRNA data we… Expand
Differences in metabolic potential between particle-associated and free-living bacteria along Pearl River Estuary.
TLDR
The results from this study highlight the central role played by particle-associated bacteria in structuring microbial assemblages, and their importance for mediating biogeochemical cycling in the estuarine ecosystem. Expand
Chapter 2 Ecogenomics of Deep-Ocean Microbial Bathytypes
The deep ocean is one of the largest and least studied biomes on Earth. The microbes inhabiting these locales require physiological adaptations to handle the associated extreme environmentalExpand
Metagenomic sequencing of marine periphyton: taxonomic and functional insights into biofilm communities
TLDR
Heterotrophic bacteria, including the majority of proteobacterial clades and Bacteroidetes, and eukaryotic macro-invertebrates were found to dominate periphyton and genes encoding enzymes that participate in anaerobic pathways, such as denitrification and methanogenesis, were detected suggesting the presence of low-oxygen micro-zones within the biofilms. Expand
Ecogenomics of Deep-Ocean Microbial Bathytypes
TLDR
Current understanding of microbial adaptation to the deep-ocean through genomic comparisons of deep-Ocean adapted microbial ecotypes and their shallow-water counterparts, including opportunistic heterotrophic microbes belonging to the Gammaproteobacteria and the fastidious taxa SAR11 and Thaumarchaea are discussed. Expand
Microbial Community Structure–Function Relationships in Yaquina Bay Estuary Reveal Spatially Distinct Carbon and Nitrogen Cycling Capacities
TLDR
The unequal distribution of microbial populations across the Yaquina Bay estuary led to a habitat-specific taxonomic and functional structure and a clear spatial distribution in microbe-mediated capacities for cycling of carbon and nitrogen, suggesting potentially distinct life-strategies between these two co-occurring lineages. Expand
Microbial players and processes involved in phytoplankton bloom utilization in the water column of a fast‐flowing, river‐dominated estuary
TLDR
The results represent the first detailed molecular analysis of the microbial response to phytoplankton lysis at the freshwater–brackish water interface in the fast‐flowing Columbia River estuary. Expand
Particle-Associated Differ from Free-Living Bacteria in Surface Waters of the Baltic Sea
TLDR
Findings indicate that PA bacteria significantly contribute to overall bacterial richness and that they differ from FL bacteria, which should be generally studied independently. Expand

TLDR
The analyses showed that PA bacterial communities were generally more diverse and appeared to be more responsive to routinely measured environmental variables than FL bacteria, suggesting that Microcystis blooms had a facilitative influence on specific bacteria by mediating the transitions from free-living to particle-attached lifestyles. Expand
Metagenomic evidence for reciprocal particle exchange between the mainstem estuary and lateral bay sediments of the lower Columbia River
TLDR
The lateral bays of the lower Columbia River estuary are identified as both sources and sinks of biogenic particles significantly impacting microbial community composition and biogeochemical activities in the estuary. Expand
Genomic Signatures for Sedimentary Microbial Utilization of Phytoplankton Detritus in a Fast-Flowing Estuary
TLDR
Sediment metagenomes from three disparate bays suggest a central role for allochthonous labile organic matter, i.e., diatom detritus, in shaping bacterial taxonomic and functional properties in the Columbia River estuary lateral bay sediments. Expand
