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.

A highly efficient array of high-purity germanium (HPGe) detectors was developed and operated at the cold neutron beam facility PF1B of the Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL) to carry out nuclear structure studies, via measurements of $$gamma$$-rays following neutron-induced capture and fission reactions. The setup consisted of a collimation system producing a pencil beam with a thermal capture equivalent flux of about 10$$^8$$ns$$^{-1}$$cm$$^{-2}$$ at the target position and negligible neutron halo. The target was surrounded by an array of eight to ten anti-Compton shielded EXOGAM Clover detectors, four to six anti-Compton shielded large coaxial GASP detectors and two standard Clover detectors. For a part of the campaign the array was combined with 16 LaBr$$_{3}$$:(Ce) detectors from the FATIMA collaboration.

The possible presence of dense magmas at Earth's core mantle boundary is expected to substantially affect the dynamics and thermal evolution of Earth's interior. However, the thermal transport properties of silicate melts under relevant high-pressure conditions are poorly understood. Here we report in situ high pressure optical absorption and synchrotron M$"o$ssbauer spectroscopic measurements of iron enriched dense silicate glasses, as laboratory analogues for dense magmas, up to pressures of 85 GPa. Our results reveal a significant increase in absorption coefficients, by almost one order of magnitude with increasing pressure to $$sim$$50 GPa, most likely owing to gradual changes in electronic structure. This suggests that the radiative thermal conductivity of dense silicate melts may decrease with pressure and so may be significantly smaller than previously expected under core-mantle boundary conditions. Such dark magmas heterogeneously distributed in the lower mantle would result in significant lateral heterogeneity of heat flux through the core mantle boundary.

We propose the experiments on the collision of intense laser pulses with energetic electron bunches and on the collision of two or more intense laser pulses for studying extreme field limits in the nonlinear interaction of electromagnetic waves. The regimes of dominant radiation reaction, which completely changes the electromagnetic wave matter interaction, will be revealed in such experiments. This will result in a new powerful source of ultra short high brightness $$gamma$$-ray pulses. A possibility of the demonstration of the electron positron pair creation from vacuum in the collision of two or more intense laser pulses is discussed.

The ITER device is currently under construction. To fulfil its mission, it will need a set of measurement systems. These systems will have to be robust and satisfy many requirements hitherto unexplored in Tokamaks. Typically, diagnostics occupy either a removable item called a port plug, or installed inside the machine as an intricate part of the overall construction. Limited space availability has meant that many systems have to be grouped together. Installation of the diagnostic systems has to be closely planned with the overall schedule. This paper will describe some of the challenges and systems that are currently being progressed.


Schwinger limit attainability with extreme power lasers

High intensity colliding laser pulses can create abundant electron-positron pair plasma, which can scatter the incoming electromagnetic waves. This process can prevent reaching the critical field of Quantum Electrodynamics at which vacuum breakdown and polarization occur. Considering the pairs are seeded by the Schwinger mechanism, it is shown that the effects of radiation friction and the electron-positron avalanche development in vacuum depend on the electromagnetic wave polarization. For circularly polarized colliding pulses, which force the electrons to move in circles, these effects dominate not only the particle motion but also the evolution of the pulses. While for linearly polarized pulses, where the electrons (positrons) oscillate along the electric field, these effects are not as strong. There is an apparent analogy of these cases with circular and linear electron accelerators with the corresponding constraining and reduced roles of synchrotron radiation losses.

ITER will have wide angle viewing systems and a divertor thermography diagnostic which shall provide infrared coverage of the divertor and large parts of the first wall surfaces with spatial and temporal resolution adequate for operational purposes and higher resolved details of the divertor and other areas for physics investigations. We propose specifications for each system such that they jointly respond to the requirements. Risk analysis driven priorities for future work concern mirror degradation, interfaces with other diagnostics, radiation damage to refractive optics, reflections and the development of calibration and measurements methods for varying optical and thermal target properties.

炉心級のプラズマにおけるELMに関する実験的,理論的な研究の進展をレビューした論文である。最近の理論的なアプローチでは、線形MHD安定性解析だけでなく、ELMを含んだ非線形輸送モデルが提案されている。これらのモデルと高速なペデスタル圧力分布の崩壊,磁気揺動,スクレイプオフ層の輸送といった実験的観測との比較が行われた。現在得られているtype I ELMのスケーリングをITERに外挿するとダイバータ板への熱負荷が問題となる。近年、高三角度及び高密度領域において、高閉じ込めを維持したまま小さなELMが得られる領域が各装置で見つかっており、これら小振幅ELMの特徴とITERへの適用性に関して議論している。一方、内部輸送障壁とELMの両立性が幾つかの装置で問題になっているが、ELMの振幅を低減することで両立することが可能になった事例を報告している。さらに、周辺電流,ペレット入射,不純物入射,外部磁場摂動等を用いたELMの動的制御法の開発とITERへの適用性について議論している。

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.
