Microbes influence a wide range of processes, some acting as catalysts to accelerate reactions or enable them to occur in a wider range of conditions, while others can be detrimental causing fouling or corrosion. Microbes are key to many remediation processes, including passive water treatment, soil bioremediation, and re-establishment of vegetation.
The majority of complex genomes is made up of repetitive and regulatory elements, yet our current analysis of the genome focuses on single nucleotide changes and exome sequencing. The “Dark Matter” that controls most of our genome is largely ignored, because short read sequencing is unable to map these highly repetitive sequences.
