The Rumen Archaea

Code: 9781786767967

Chapter synopsis: Methane (CH4) is produced in the rumen by a group of microorganisms called methanogenic Archaea In this chapter, the types of Archaea found in the rumen will be reviewed through a summary of the rumen cultivation studies and molecular surveys of rumen archaeal community composition. The chapter will also assess methanogen function via assessment of genes encoded in the genomic information retrieved from pure cultures of methanogens, as well as from re-assemblies of genomes derived from metagenome data sets from mixed enrichment cultures and directly from rumen samples.
