Hydrogenotrophic methanogenesis in archaeal phylum Verstraetearchaeota reveals the shared ancestry of all methanogens
(Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 2019-02-27)
Methanogenic archaea are major contributors to the global carbon cycle and were long thought to belong exclusively to the euryarchaeal phylum. Discovery of the methanogenesis gene cluster methylcoenzyme M reductase (Mcr) ...
Massively parallel screening of synthetic microbial communities
(Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 2019-06-11)
Microbial communities have numerous potential applications in biotechnology, agriculture, and medicine. Nevertheless, the limited accuracy with which we can predict interspecies interactions and environmental dependencies ...
Nucleic acid cleavage with a hyperthermophilic Cas9 from an uncultured Ignavibacterium
(Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 2019-10-28)
Clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR)-associated 9 (Cas9) systems have been effectively harnessed to engineer the genomes of organisms from across the tree of life. Nearly all currently ...
