2021 SEP 14 (NewsRx) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Life Science Weekly -- Research findings on information technology are discussed in a new report. According to news originating from Greifswald, Germany, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, "ABSTRACT A highly resolved taxonomy for ammonia-oxidizing archaea (AOA) based on the alpha subunit of ammonia monooxygenase (amoA) was recently established, which uncovered novel environmental patterns of AOA, challenging previous generalizations. However, many microbiome studies target the 16S rRNA gene as a marker; thus, the usage of this novel taxonomy is currently limited."

Our news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from University of Greifswald: "Here, we exploited the phylogenetic congruence of archaeal amoA and 16S rRNA genes to link 16S rRNA gene classification to the novel amoA taxonomy. We screened publicly available archaeal genomes and contigs for the co-occurring amoA and 16S rRNA genes and constructed a 16S rRNA gene database with the corresponding...
