Sulphur is a universally required cell nutrient found in two amino acids and other small organic molecules. All aerobic marine bacteria are known to use assimilatory sulphate reduction to supply sulphur for biosynthesis, although many can assimilate sulphur from organic compounds that contain reduced sulphur atoms. An analysis of three complete ‘Candidatus Pelagibacter ubique’ genomes, and public ocean metagenomic data sets, suggested that members of the ubiquitous and abundant SAR11… Expand
