Team of scientists uncover bacterial resistance to arsenic protects against protist killing

  A group of international scientists have provided evidence that amoeba use arsenic to poison their bacterial prey (“Bacterial resistance to arsenic protects against protist killing”, Biometals, DOI 10.1007/s10534-017-0003-4). Protists were the first eukaryotes to evolve mainly using bacteria as their food source. Protists with an efficient mechanism to rapidly kill bacterial prey would have a selective advantage. Bacteria in turn would have to find mechanisms to protect themselves from...

Traditional size-fractionated filtering-based metabarcoding can't discriminate planktonic microbial and large eukaryotes due to environmental DNA

  Microeukaryotic plankton constitute part of the base of aquatic food webs and play important roles in the structure and function of aquatic ecosystems. Reservoir microeukaryotic plankton (0.2–200 microns) including protozoa, algae, fungi and small metazoan, etc., are characterized by their small size and high diversity. This diversity has been studied through light microscopy since the work of the early microscopists of the European Enlightenment. However, there are clear limitations in...
