The vast majority of bacterial diversity lies within phylum-level lineages called "candidate phyla," which lack isolated representatives and are poorly understood. These bacteria are surprisingly abundant in the oral cavity of marine mammals. We employed a genome-resolved metagenomic approach to recover and characterize genomes and functional potential from microbes in the oral gingival sulcus of two bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus). We detected organisms from 24 known bacterial phyla… Expand
Patterns of gene content and co-occurrence constrain the evolutionary path toward animal association in CPR bacteria
TLDR
The genome inventory for Absconditabacteria, Gracilibacteria, and Saccharibacteria, CPR bacteria known to occur in both animal-associated and environmental microbiomes is expanded, and analyses suggest habitat transitions were likely not accompanied by large transfer or loss events, but rather were associated with continuous proteome remodeling.

Functional and genetic markers of niche partitioning among enigmatic members of the human oral microbiome
TLDR
The data illuminate niche partitioning of enigmatic members of the oral cavity, including TM7, SR1, and GN02, and provide genomes for poorly characterized yet prevalent members of this biome, such as uncultivated Flavobacteriaceae. Expand
Evidence of independent acquisition and adaption of ultra-small bacteria to human hosts across the highly diverse yet reduced genomes of the phylum Saccharibacteria
TLDR
This study systematically captured the spectrum of known diversity in this phylum by reconstructing completely novel Class level genomes belonging to groups G3, G6 and G5 through cultivation enrichment and/or metagenomic binning from humans and mammalian rumen. Expand
Saccharibacteria (TM7) in the Human Oral Microbiome
TLDR
The recent cultivation and characterization of Nanosynbacter lyticus type strain TM7x—the first Saccharibacteria strain coisolated as an ultrasmall obligate parasite with its bacterial host from the human oral cavity—provide a rare glimpse into the novel symbiotic lifestyle of these enigmatic human-associated bacteria. Expand
Functional and genetic markers of niche partitioning among enigmatic members of the human oral microbiome
TLDR
This study reveals an intriguing resemblance between dental plaque and non-host environments indicated by the TM7 evolution, suggesting that plaque may have served as a stepping stone for environmental microbes to adapt to host environments for some clades of human associated microbes. Expand
Candidate Phyla Radiation Roizmanbacteria from hot springs have novel, unexpectedly abundant, and potentially alternatively functioning CRISPR-Cas systems
TLDR
A genome-resolved metagenomic investigation of hot spring microbiomes and recovered CRISPR systems mostly from Roizmanbacteria that involve CasY proteins that are divergent from published sequences expand the understanding of CasY diversity, and more broadly,CRISPR-Cas systems and phage of CPR bacteria.

Candidate Phyla Radiation Roizmanbacteria From Hot Springs Have Novel and Unexpectedly Abundant CRISPR-Cas Systems
TLDR
A genome-resolved metagenomic investigation of hot spring microbiomes and recovered CRISPR systems mostly from Roizmanbacteria that involve CasY proteins that are divergent from published sequences expand the understanding of CasY diversity, and more broadly,CRISPR-Cas systems and phage of CPR bacteria.

Major New Microbial Groups Expand Diversity and Alter our Understanding of the Tree of Life
TLDR
How new genomes have changed the structure of the tree of life and altered the understanding of biology, evolution, and metabolic roles in biogeochemical processes is illustrated. Expand
Reductive evolution and unique predatory mode in the CPR bacterium Vampirococcus lugosii
TLDR
Analysis of the biology and genome of Vampirococcus lugosii supports parasitism as a widespread lifestyle of CPR bacteria, which probably contribute to the control of bacterial populations in diverse ecosystems. Expand
Patterns of Gene Content and Co-occurrence Constrain the Evolutionary Path toward Animal Association in Candidate Phyla Radiation Bacteria
TLDR
The genome inventory for Absconditabacteria, Gracilibacteria, and Saccharibacteria, CPR bacteria known to occur in both animal-associated and environmental microbiomes is expanded, and analyses suggest habitat transitions were likely not accompanied by large transfer or loss events but rather were associated with continuous proteome remodeling.

Small Genomes and Sparse Metabolisms of Sediment-Associated Bacteria from Four Candidate Phyla
TLDR
Deep sequenced microbial communities from acetate-stimulated aquifer sediment are deeply sequenced to recover the complete and essentially complete genomes of single representatives of the candidate phyla SR1, WWE3, TM7, and OD1, revealing metabolic capabilities on the basis of gene content. Expand
Unusual biology across a group comprising more than 15% of domain Bacteria
TLDR
This work reconstructed 8 complete and 789 draft genomes from bacteria representing >35 phyla and documented features that consistently distinguish these organisms from other bacteria, infer that this group, which may comprise >15% of the bacterial domain, has shared evolutionary history, and describe it as the candidate phyla radiation (CPR).

A Systematic Analysis of Biosynthetic Gene Clusters in the Human Microbiome Reveals a Common Family of Antibiotics
TLDR
It is discovered that BGCs for a class of antibiotics in clinical trials, thiopeptides, are widely distributed in genomes and metagenomes of the human microbiota, and they demonstrate the bacterial production of drug-like molecules in humans. Expand
Cultivation of a human-associated TM7 phylotype reveals a reduced genome and epibiotic parasitic lifestyle
TLDR
This first completed genome for a human-associated TM7 phylotype revealed a complete lack of amino acid biosynthetic capacity, and comparative genomics analyses with uncultivated environmental TM7 assemblies show remarkable conserved gene synteny and only minimal gene loss/gain that may have occurred as TM7x adapted to conditions within the human host.

Global metagenomic survey reveals a new bacterial candidate phylum in geothermal springs
TLDR
Genome reconstruction indicates a heterotrophic lifestyle with conspicuous nutritional deficiencies, suggesting the need for metabolic complementarity with other microbes, and co-occurrence patterns identifies a number of putative partners, including an uncultured Armatimonadetes lineage. Expand
Pyrosequencing-based profiling of archaeal and bacterial 16S rRNA genes identifies a novel archaeon associated with black band disease in corals.
TLDR
Using amplicon-pyrosequencing of 16S ribosomal RNA genes, this work investigated the community structure of both archaea and bacteria within microbial lesions of BBD and the less-virulent precursor stage, 'cyanobacterial patches' (CP), affecting the coral Montipora hispida. Expand
Marine mammals harbor unique microbiotas shaped by and yet distinct from the sea
TLDR
This work studies the bacterial communities in 337 samples from 5 body sites in 48 healthy dolphins and 18 healthy sea lions, as well as those of adjacent seawater and other hosts to elucidate the factors structuring marine mammal microbiotas and may enhance monitoring of marine mammal health.

First genomic insights into members of a candidate bacterial phylum responsible for wastewater bulking
TLDR
It is proposed that the KSB3 filaments are highly sensitive to their surroundings and that cellular processes, including those causing bulking, are controlled by external stimuli, which may lead to more robust treatment options to prevent bulking. Expand
