Abstract

Metagenomic sequencing of fracture fluid from South Africa recovered a nearly complete “Candidatus Bathyarchaeota” archaeon genome. The metagenome-assembled genome of BE326-BA-RLH contains genes involved in methane metabolism and dissimilatory nitrate reduction. This study presents the first genomic evidence for potential anaerobic methane oxidation in the phylum “Ca. Bathyarchaeota.”
