Recruitment of some representative halophile genomes from metagenomes of hypersaline waters of different salinities. A.- Reads recruitment at 95% of identity in at least 50 bp was normalized against the size of the genomes and the databases. Recruitment of both “Spiribacter” was compared with three haloarchaea: Haloquadratum walsbyi, Halonotius pteroides, Ca. Haloredivivus and four bacteria Salinibacter ruber, Salinivibrio costicola, Chromohalobacter salexigens and Halomonas elongata. B.- Figure show genomic islands and metagenomic recruitment of the “Spiribacter salinus” M19-40 against metagenome from Santa Pola (19%). A restrictive cut-off of 95% of nucleotide identity in 50% of the length of the metagenomic read was used. ND: not determined.
