• Ammonia-oxidizing archaea have similar power requirements in diverse marine oxic sediments 

      Zhao, Rui; Mogollon, Jose M; Roerdink, Desiree Lisette; Thorseth, Ingunn Hindenes; Økland, Ingeborg Elisabet; Jørgensen, Steffen Leth (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Energy/power availability is regarded as one of the ultimate controlling factors of microbial abundance in the deep biosphere, where fewer cells are found in habitats of lower energy availability. A critical assumption ...
    • Genomes of Thaumarchaeota from deep sea sediments reveal specific adaptations of three independently evolved lineages 

      Kerou, Melina; Ponce-Toledo, Rafael I.; Zhao, Rui; Abby, Sophie S.; Hirai, Miho; Nomaki, Hidetaka; Takaki, Yoshihiro; Nunoura, Takuro; Jørgensen, Steffen Leth; Schleper, Christa (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Marine sediments represent a vast habitat for complex microbiomes. Among these, ammonia oxidizing archaea (AOA) of the phylum Thaumarchaeota are one of the most common, yet little explored, inhabitants, which seem ...
