Phage typically have small genomes and depend on their bacterial hosts for replication. We generated metagenomic datasets from many diverse ecosystems and reconstructed hundreds of huge phage genomes, between 200 kbp and 716 kbp in length. Thirty four genomes were manually curated to completion, including the largest phage genomes yet reported. Expanded genetic repertoires include diverse and new CRISPR-Cas systems, tRNAs, tRNA synthetases, tRNA modification enzymes, initiation and elongation factors and ribosomal proteins. Phage CRISPR have the capacity to silence host transcription factors and translational genes, potentially as part of a larger interaction network that intercepts translation to redirect biosynthesis to phage-encoded functions. Some phage repurpose bacterial systems for phage-defense to eliminate competing phage. We phylogenetically define seven major clades of huge phage from human and other animal microbiomes, oceans, lakes, sediments, soils and the built environment. We conclude that large gene inventories reflect a conserved biological strategy, observed across a broad bacterial host range and resulting in the distribution of huge phage across Earth's ecosystems.

The metabolic platform in which microbial aerobic respiration evolved is tightly linked to the origins of Cyanobacteria (Oxyphotobacteria). Melainabacteria and Sericytochromatia, close phylogenetic neighbores to Oxyphotobacteria comprise both fermentative and aerobic representatives, or clades that are capablee of both. Here, we predict the metabolisms of Margulisbacteria from two distinct environments and Saganbacteria, and compare them to genomes of organisms from the related lineages. Melainabacteria BJ4A obtained from Mizunami site are potentially able to use O$$_{2}$$ and other terminal electron acceptors. The type C heme-copper oxygen reductase found in Melainabacteria BJ4A may be adapted to low O$$_{2}$$ levels, as expected for microaerophilic or anoxic environments such as the subsurface. Notably, Melainabacteria BJ4A seems to have a branched electron transport chain, with one branch leading to a cytochrome d ubiquinol oxidoreductase and the other one leading to the type C heme-copper oxygen reductase. Both these enzymes have high affinity for O$$_{2}$$, thus are adapted to low O$$_{2}$$ levels. These contemporary lineages have representatives with fermentative H$$_{2}$$-based metabolism, lineages capable of aerobic or anaerobic respiration, and lineages with both. Our findings support the idea that the ancestor of these lineages was an anaerobe in which fermentation and H$$_{2}$$ metabolism were central metabolic features.

The bacterial phylum Nitrospirae is phylogenetically diverse. There are relatively few isolated representatives available for laboratory study and the physiology, functions and distributions of these bacteria across environments remain largely unknown. To understand the ecological role of Nitrospirae in the deep subsurface, we analyzed metagenomically-derived near complete genomes from groundwaters associated with granite and sedimentary rock where Nitrospirae are very abundant. The bacteria are autotrophs that fix CO$$_{2}$$ via the Wood-Ljungdahl pathway and reductive TCA cycles. The genomes encode versatile energy-generating pathways that involve sulfate reduction, hydrogen oxidation and nitrite reduction. Phylogenetic analyses indicate that the organisms are most similar to the isolated magnetotactic bacterium, Candidatus Magnetobacterium bavaricum, with only 89-91% 16S rRNA gene sequence identity. These Nitrospirae bacteria appear to play critical ecosystem roles as primary producers and they are likely central to sulfur cycling in the deep subsurface.

We investigated the microbiology two Japanese subsurface research sites and compared the major groups of organisms lacking cultivated representatives found from other subsurface sites, including a Colorado aquifer and deep aquifers underlying the Crystal Geyser. We analyzed metagenomic data 19 samples from the Horonobe site and 7 from the Mizunami site. DNA sequences from each sample were assembled independently and scaffolds encoding the ribosomal protein S3 sequence were identified. The major characteristic of the microbiology of the Mizumani site that distinguished it from the Horonobe site is local very high abundances of Nitrospirae, Parcubacteria, Ignavibacteria, ANME-2D and Micrarchaeota. In contrast, the Horonobe site has locations that are highly enriched in Altarchiales, Syntrophobacteriales, Atribacteria, ANME-2D and Methanogens. Beyond reshaping the Tree of Life, the societal importance of these discoveries remains little known. However, given the huge inventory of new groups of proteins and pathways in the genomes of these organisms, it is reasonable to anticipate major discoveries will hold relevance, for example, in terms of pharmaceutical discovery. Given the importance of the subsurface as a potential host environment for storage of nuclear waste, finding some commonality would indicate the general relevance of information from one site for prediction of the characteristics of other sites.

We investigated the geochemical and microbial properties of groundwater samples and the habitat of biofilm collected from a borehole drilled in the Horonobe Underground Research Laboratories (Horonobe URL) at Horonobe area, Hokkaido, Japan. Samples were collected from a borehole at 140 m below the surface in the Horonobe URL, and the time series changes of geochemistry, microbial abundance, and microbial diversity were monitored for four days. To understand the ecological role of the biofilm in the deep subsurface, we analyzed metagenomically derived genome data from the groundwater samples. From the results of microscopic observation, it is indicated that abundant biofilm were collected in the groundwater samples. Analysis of 16S rRNA gene by next generation sequencing indicates that the biofilms were dominated by Candidatus Altiarchaeales (SM1 Euryarchaeon) in the methane- carbonate-rich groundwater. The genomes encode autotrophic metabolism that fix CO$$_{2}$$ via the Wood-Ljungdahl pathway and reductive tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycles. The genes for polysaccharide biosynthesis were detected in the SM1 genomes. Biofilm phase were also characterized with accumulation/sorption of heavy metals such as Cr, Fe, Ni, Cu, Pb, Ce, Nd, U and Th. From the calculation of the bioaccumulation factor for the concentration of heavy metals, it is possible that the biofilms selectively accumulate heavy metals according to their metabolic activity. Hence, it is necessary to evaluate mechanisms of interaction between heavy metals, microbial community structure and metabolic activities of biofilms. The biofilm-mineral interaction provides an implication for the possible retardation of radionuclide migration in subsurface hydrology, which is of practical interest in geological disposal systems for high-level radioactive waste.
