Extensive genomic diversity within coexisting members of a microbial species has been revealed through selected cultured isolates and metagenomic assemblies. Yet, the cell-by-cell genomic composition of wild uncultured populations of co-occurring cells is largely unknown. In this work, we applied large-scale single-cell genomics to study populations of the globally abundant marine cyanobacterium Prochlorococcus. We show that they are composed of hundreds of subpopulations with distinct “genomic backbones,” each backbone consisting of a different set of...

Data from: Concentrations and ratios of particulate organic carbon, nitrogen, and phosphorus in the global ocean

Adam C. Martiny, Jasper A. Vrugt & Michael W. Lomas
Knowledge of concentrations and elemental ratios of suspended particles are important for understanding many biogeochemical processes in the ocean. These include patterns of phytoplankton nutrient limitation as well as linkages between the cycles of carbon and nitrogen or phosphorus. To further enable studies of ocean biogeochemistry, we here present a global dataset compiled from published literature and consisting of 60811 measurements of particulate organic carbon, nitrogen, and phosphorus analyzed as part of 70 cruises or...
