The total amount of carbon present in all of these microbial cells equals that of all plants on Earth, and plant carbon far exceeds animal carbon. Moreover, the collective contents of nitrogen and phosphorus in microbial cells exceed that of all plant biomass by 10-fold. Thus, microbial cells, small as they are, are not inconsequential; they constitute the major fraction of biomass on Earth and are key reservoirs of essential nutrients for life. We will see later that this very large number of very small cells also play important roles in many hot-button global issues such as climate change, agricultural productivity, fuels, and many other issues of importance to humans.
1. DNA is extracted from cells. 2. 3). 3, 4. The gene is sequenced and the sequence aligned with sequences from other organisms. A computer algorithm makes pairwise comparisons at each base and generates a phylogenetic tree, 5, that depicts evolutionary relationships. In the example shown, the sequence differences are highlighted in yellow and are as follows: organism 1 environment. Thus, microbial ecosystems expand and contract, depending on the resources and conditions available and the different populations of organisms they can support.
The cells of plants and animals are also eukaryotic. 2), the word “prokaryote” does not imply evolutionary relatedness. As we will see in the next section, although species of Bacteria and Archaea may look similar, they are not closely related in an evolutionary sense. Genes, Genomes, Nucleus, and Nucleoid The life processes of a cell are controlled by its complement of genes, its genome. A gene is a segment of DNA that encodes a 4 U N I T 1 • T h e F o u n d at i o n s o f M i c r o b i o l o g y protein or an RNA molecule.
