Microbial co-habitation and lateral gene transfer: what transposases can tell us

Article English OPEN
Hooper, Sean D; Mavromatis, Konstantinos; Kyrpides, Nikos C;

Background Determining the habitat range for various microbes is not a simple, straightforward matter, as habitats interlace, microbes move between habitats, and microbial communities change over time. In this study, we explore an approach using the history of lateral g... View more
