What are 'life-style' genes?
... respective systems of higher organisms. Since the archaeal
molecules have a simpler composition, they represent a valuable model system for investigating the more complex systems (of higher organisms). On page 508 of the current issue of Nature, Ruepp and colleagues describe the complete genome sequence o...
New group of microorganisms discovered in the open sea
...om the surface to 4,750 meters deep. Two specific archaeal
groups-pelagic euryarchaeota and pelagic crenarchaeota--were found in high numbers in the samples. In the past, archaea were known as archaebacteria, but it has since been found that they are fundamentally distinct from true bacteria. Very lit...

bacterial lineage that consumes methane anaerobically. He gathered this evidence using FISH and iron microbe techniques to measure carbon isotope depletion. Martin Brasier, Earth Sciences at the University of Oxford, will provide a new look at whethe...
