Genomic evolution of the class Acidithiobacillia: deep-branching Proteobacteria living in extreme acidic conditions

Moya-Beltrán et al. (2021). The ISME Journal 15 (11)
AbstractMembers of the genus Acidithiobacillus, now ranked within the class Acidithiobacillia, are model bacteria for the study of chemolithotrophic energy conversion under extreme conditions. Knowledge of the genomic and taxonomic diversity of Acidithiobacillia is still limited. Here, we present a systematic analysis of nearly 100 genomes from the class sampled from a wide range of habitats. Some of these genomes are new and others have been reclassified on the basis of advanced genomic analysi
