Examine the phylogenetic tree of life in Figure 1.6b. In what ways and why does it differ from the tree in Figure 17.3?
Answer to relevant QuestionsAlthough both are slime molds, Dictyostelium and Physarum differ in major ways. Explain. Why is environmental proteomics limited by natural abundance of microbial populations, whereas environmental genomics and metatranscriptomics are not so limited? Compare and contrast the use of FISH and phylochips for enumerating microbial cells in natural environments. What advantages and limitations do each of these methods have? How and in what way does an input of organic matter, such as sewage, affect the oxygen content of a river or stream? Imagine a sewage plant that is releasing sewage containing high levels of ammonia and phosphate and very low levels of organic carbon. Which types of microbial blooms might be triggered by this sewage? How would the graphs ...
