Metagenomic surveys have identified uncultivated microbial species whose genomes are predicted to correspond to ultra-small cell sizes. In a new study, Brown et al. describe the genomes of 797 ultra-small bacteria obtained by metagenomic sequencing of 0.2 μm filtrates from aquifier samples. The genomes coalesced into ~35 candidate phyla, which the authors… CONTINUE READING
