Quite a short digest today, still many interesting articles. Today I would like to focus on two papers, both related to  water microbiome. In the first one Antonio M. Martin-Platero et al.  show how microbial plankton are organized into clearly defined communities whose turnover is rapid and sharp, while the paper by Yoann Seeleuthner et al. reveals underestimated functional diversity of  uncultured marine protists across oceans. The third paper I would like to mention is a report by Manuel Delgado-Baquerizo, which provides a global atlas of the dominant bacteria found in soil.
