How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Currently working in the ArchViro team (Susanne Erdmann team) at the Max Planck institute for Marine Microbiology. Running several project to expand the archaeal virome knowledge and the impact of membranes vesicles in the archaeal world, from hypersaline environments to oceans.
Viruses represent a driving force in the evolution of microorganisms including those thriving in extreme environments. However, our knowledge of the viral diversity associated to microorganisms inhabiting the deep-sea hydrothermal vents remains limited. The phylum of Thermotogae, including thermophilic bacteria, is well represented in this environm...
Nos connaissances sur la diversité virale associée aux micro-organismes présents dans les sources hydrothermales océaniques profondes restent encore limitées. Seules quelques études concernant l’abondance virale et l’impact de ceux-ci sur la mortalité microbienne dans ces écosystèmes sont disponibles. En effet, seuls 6 bactériovirus et 2 archéoviru...
Here, we present the draft genome sequences of two thermophilic Marinitoga strain members of the Thermotogales order, Marinitoga camini DV1155 and Marinitoga camini DV1197. These strains were isolated from deep-sea hydrothermal vents of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge.
Mobile genetic elements (MGEs) such as viruses, plasmids, vesicles, gene transfer agents (GTAs), transposons and transpovirions, which collectively represent the mobilome, interact with cellular organisms from all three domains of life, including those thriving in the most extreme environments. While efforts have been made to better understand deep...
Prokaryotic viruses play a major role in the microbial ecology and evolution. However, the virosphere associated with deep-sea hydrothermal ecosystems remains largely unexplored. Numerous instances of lateral gene transfer have contributed to the complex and incongruent evolutionary history of Thermotogales, an order well represented in deep-sea hy...
