The Evolution of Small Bacterial Genomesin the Ultra-Oligotrophic Ocean

submitted by: dougramsey
The size and coding capacity of a genome are its most fundamental properties. What selective pressures deter mine the expansion and contraction of genomes, and how is genome size related to adaptive strategies? Very small marine microbial genomes are providing new insights into these questions. The first reports of genome sequences from the cyanobacterium Prochlorococcus and the α-proteo bacterium SAR11 (Pelagibacter) established that these very abundant marine bacterioplankton clades have...
