Abstract
ABSTRACT The phylum Gemmatimonadota comprises mainly uncultured microorganisms that inhabit different environments such as soils, freshwater lakes, marine sediments, sponges, or corals. Based on 16S rRNA gene studies, the group PAUC43f is one of the most frequently retrieved Gemmatimonadota in marine samples. However, its physiology and ecological roles are completely unknown since, to date, not a single PAUC43f isolate or me

Metagenomic Discovery of “ Candidatus Parvarchaeales”-Related Lineages Sheds Light on Adaptation and Diversification from Neutral-Thermal to Acidic-Mesothermal Environments

Citation
Rao et al. (2023). mSystems 8 (2)
Names
“Rehaiarchaeum” “Jingweiarchaeales” “Haiyanarchaeaceae” “Jingweiarchaeum” “Haiyanarchaeum” “Parvarchaeum tengchongense” “Jingweiarchaeum tengchongense” “Haiyanarchaeum thermophilum” “Parvarchaeales”
Abstract
“ Candidatus Parvarchaeales” microbes may represent a lineage uniquely distributed in extreme environments such as AMD and hot springs. However, little is known about the strategies and processes of how they adapted to these extreme environments.

Comparative Genomic Insights into the Evolution of Halobacteria -Associated “ Candidatus Nanohaloarchaeota”

Citation
Zhao et al. (2022). mSystems 7 (6)
Names
Ca. Nanohaloarchaeota
Abstract
The DPANN superphylum is a group of archaea widely distributed in various habitats. They generally have small cells and have a symbiotic lifestyle with other archaea.

Naming the unnamed: over 65,000 Candidatus names for unnamed Archaea and Bacteria in the Genome Taxonomy Database

Citation
Pallen et al. (2022). International Journal of Systematic and Evolutionary Microbiology 72 (9)
Names
“Paenistieleria bergensis” “Afabiota” “Afabiia” “Afabiales” “Afabiaceae” “Afabia” “Afabia udivosa”
Abstract
Thousands of new bacterial and archaeal species and higher-level taxa are discovered each year through the analysis of genomes and metagenomes. The Genome Taxonomy Database (GTDB) provides hierarchical sequence-based descriptions and classifications for new and as-yet-unnamed taxa. However, bacterial nomenclature, as currently configured, cannot keep up with the need for new well-formed names. Instead, microbiologists have been forced to use hard-to-remember alphanumeric placeholder labels. Here

Reevaluation of the Phylogenetic Diversity and Global Distribution of the Genus “CandidatusAccumulibacter”

Citation
Petriglieri et al. (2022). mSystems 7 (3)
Names
“Accumulibacter”
Abstract
“CandidatusAccumulibacter” is the most studied PAO, with a primary role in biological nutrient removal. However, the species-level taxonomy of this lineage is convoluted due to the use of different phylogenetic markers or genome sequencing approaches. Here, we redefined the phylogeny of these organisms, proposing a comprehensive approach which could be used to address the classification of other diverse and uncultivated lineages.

Deciphering Symbiotic Interactions of “ Candidatus Aenigmarchaeota” with Inferred Horizontal Gene Transfers and Co-occurrence Networks

Citation
Li et al. (2021). mSystems 6 (4)
Names
Ca. Aenigmarchaeota
Abstract
Recent advances in sequencing technology promoted the blowout discovery of super tiny microbes in the Diapherotrites , Parvarchaeota , Aenigmarchaeota , Nanoarchaeota , and Nanohaloarchaeota (DPANN) superphylum. However, the unculturable properties of the majority of microbes impeded our investigation of their behavior and symbiotic lifestyle in the corresponding c

Comparative Genomics Reveals Thermal Adaptation and a High Metabolic Diversity in “ Candidatus Bathyarchaeia”

Citation
Qi et al. (2021). mSystems 6 (4)
Names
Bathyarchaeia
Abstract
Ca . Bathyarchaeia MAGs from terrestrial hot spring habitats are poorly revealed, though they have been studied extensively in marine ecosystems.

Comparative Genomics Reveals Ecological and Evolutionary Insights into Sponge-Associated Thaumarchaeota

Citation
Zhang et al. (2019). mSystems 4 (4)
Names
“Cenoporarchaeum” “Cenoporarchaeum stylissae”
Abstract
Sponges represent ecologically important models to understand the evolution of symbiotic interactions of metazoans with microbial symbionts. Thaumarchaeota are commonly found in sponges, but their potential adaptations to a host-associated lifestyle are largely unknown. Here, we present three novel sponge-associated thaumarchaeal species and compare their genomic and predicted functional features with those of closely related free-living counterparts. We foun

Increased Biosynthetic Gene Dosage in a Genome-Reduced Defensive Bacterial Symbiont

Abstract
Secondary metabolites, which are small-molecule organic compounds produced by living organisms, provide or inspire drugs for many different diseases. These natural products have evolved over millions of years to provide a survival benefit to the producing organism and often display potent biological activity with important therapeutic applications. For instance, defensive compounds in the environment may be cytotoxic to eukaryotic cells, a property exploitable for cancer treatment. Here, we desc
