Abstract

Aerated soils form the second largest sink for atmospheric CH4. A nearcomplete genome of uncultured upland soil cluster Gammaproteobacteria that oxidize CH4 at <2.5 ppmv was obtained from incubated Antarctic mineral cryosols. This first genome of high-affinity methanotrophs can help resolve the mysteries about their phylogenetic affiliation and metabolic potential.
