Abstract

Soils are teeming with micro-organisms. Estimates vary between thousands to millions of microbial ‘species’ per gram of soil, with particle numbers including phages totalling more than astronomical objects in the universe. The application of modern sequencing technologies to biomes means we know a l...

Abstract: Soils are teeming with micro-organisms. Estimates vary between thousands to millions of microbial ‘species’ per gram of soil, with particle numbers including phages totalling more than astronomical objects in the universe. The application of modern sequencing technologies to biomes means we know a lot more about who is present in soils.
