  • The genome copy numbers of seven crenarchaeal species of four genera have been reported. All of them are monoploid and thus this seems to be a characteristic feature of Crenarchaeota. In stark contrast, none of six species representing six euryarchaeal genera is monoploid. Therefore Euryarchaea are typically oligoploid or polyploidy and their genome copy numbers are tightly regulated in response to growth phase and/or growth rate. A theoretical consideration called 'Muller's ratchet' predicts… CONTINUE READING
