A New Field Guide for Earth’s Wild Microbes
In November, researchers from the Department of Energy’s Joint Genome Institute announced a significant advance: They have assembled the largest catalog of microbes to date, containing over 50,000 genomes from 18,000 different microbial species—12,000 of which have never been documented before. Their study, published in the journal Nature Biotechnology, expands this branch of the known tree of life by a whopping 44 percent.
“There are only about 10,000 species of microbes that have been cultured and described formally, and yet there might be a billion species. That is why this study is so important.”
Soil bacteria are a potent source of therapeutics. The soil bacterial strain Streptomyces, for example, has given rise to numerous antibiotics and even anti-cancer drugs.
“By better cataloguing the diversity of microbes out there, we hope that we're better able to identify all the different metabolisms and unique functionalities that are encoded within the entire tree of life.”
