Diazotrophs play a fundamental role in biogeochemical processes by providing bioavailable nitrogen (Sohm et al., 2011; Karl et al., 2012), which determines the primary production in the ocean (Postgate, 1982; Gruber and Sarmiento, 1997; Karl et al., 1997). UCYN-A (Candidatus Atelocyanobacterium thalassa) is considered to be the most abundant unicellular diazotroph in the global ocean (Moisander et al., 2010; Luo et al., 2012; Martinez-Perez et al., 2016; Turk-Kubo et al., 2018; Zehr and Capone, 2020). It has been shown that UCYN-A exchanges fixed nitrogen for fixed carbon from its haptophyte host (Thompson et al., 2012; Zehr, 2015; Martinez-Perez et al., 2016). The combination of an obligate symbiosis with haptophyte algae (Thompson et al., 2012; Krupke et al., 2014, 2015; Zehr, 2015; Cabello et al., 2016; Cornejo-Castillo et al., 2016; Martinez-Perez et al., 2016; Zehr et al., 2016; Munoz-Marin et al., 2019; Zehr and Capone, 2020; Farnelid et al., 2021) and cosmopolitan distribution (Moisander et al., 2010; Farnelid et al., 2016; Harding et al., 2018; Shiozaki et al., 2018; Cabello et al., 2020; Tang et al., 2020) makes UCYN-A unusual in the world’s ocean.
