DOE Metagenomic Microbiome Analysis Expands Known Phylogenetic Diversity of Earth's Bacteria, Archaea This microbial catalog can help in understanding secondary-metabolite biosynthetic potential and resolving thousands of host linkages to uncultivated viruses. New Human Gut Microbial Catalog Expands Number of Reference Genomes, Known Proteins The Unified Human Gastrointestinal Genome (UHGG) and Unified Human Gastrointestinal Protein (UHGP) catalogs include more than 4,600 human gut microbial representatives. DoE Awards $64M in Funding to Groups Using Genomics to Study Plants, Microbes The projects are focused on the impact of microbe communities on soil nutrient cycling, and the relationship between gene function and beneficial plant traits. Stanford Team Uses Imputation Approach to Uncover Thousands of New Microbiome Proteins Premium Researchers focused on using existing computational methods to fill in gaps in the human microbiome without reference genomes. Largest Poplar Tree SNP Dataset Presented at PAG Conference DoE scientists said the data could be used to link DNA variations to phenotypes in the trees, and could even be useful for Cancer Moonshot researchers.
