Hypersaline Lake Urmia: a potential hotspot for microbial genomic variation

Physico-chemical features of Lake Urmia Sampling was performed during the period of lowest rainfall and input volume in the year when the lake water reached the highest salt concentration (locations shown in Fig. 1, Supplementary Table S1). The measured ionic composition of the collected brine showed the typical composition of halite-dominated…

Genome-wide estimation of recombination, mutation and positive selection enlightens diversification drivers of Mycobacterium bovis

Global phylogenetic analysis A Maximum Likelihood (ML) phylogenetic tree based on the 69 M. bovis isolates and reference genome was obtained (Fig. 2A). This strategy allows the generation of a more robust tree, when comparing with single gene based trees or multi-locus based trees, that do not capture the variability across the…
