They found out that approximately all archaeal genomes, as well as CRISPR nucleases, were highly diverse.
The 16S rRNA gene sequences from cultured methanogens only account for approximately 0.7% of the total archaeal sequences of rumen origin, and several taxa have no single cultured representative [3].
One such project, led by researchers from Montana State University, in Bozeman, Montana, led to the discovery of a completely new archaeal lineage in the geochemically diverse thermal features of the Yellowstone National Park.
Increasing numbers of investigations have indicated that the archaeal amoA gene is ubiquitous in waters, sediments, coral reefs, and soils of various environmental conditions (Beman et al.
Amplicons classified as mitochondrial, chloroplast, Archaeal, eukaryotic, or unknown in origin were removed from the dataset.
In this context, a recent study based on metagenomic data has shown that about 10% of environmental bacterial or archaeal sequences might not be recovered when using a targeted PCR survey with the most common primers for SSU rRNA [37].
In the anaerobic reactor where hydrogen partial pressure is usually sufficiently low for syntrophic growth ((2) + (3)/(4)), the corresponding bacterial and archaeal populations can interact closely in a complex manner in the sludge consortia [10, 11].
