Scientists Found New Bacteria Community

The researchers have currently discovered new microbial below the earth. The study was led by the researchers from the Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and UC Berkeley. According to the scientists, the DNA sequencing has been done at the Joint Genome Institute, a DOE Office of Science User Facility.

The study has revealed new microbial groups through reconstructing the genomes of over 2,500 bacteria from sediment and groundwater samples. The scientists have discovered the genomes from 80 percent of familiar bacteria phyla. The scientists have mentioned the research as an extraordinary degree of biological variety at one location. Furthermore, the scientists have also got 47 new phylum-level bacterial groups. These bacteria groups are named after microbiologists and other scientists, stated the scientists.

The scientists have also experienced the working process of microbial groups which is supposed to be difficult to the planet's climate. The scientists have stated that this new research helps to understand one of Earth's essential, least unspoken and mysterious lands of life.
