Overview of key metabolic predictions of Woesearchaeota and potential syntrophic metabolism model. a Comparative metabolic analyses of the 19 Woesearchaeotal genome bins generated by BLASTing against GenBank NCBI-nr database. Genes identified belong to the central carbon metabolism, nitrogen cycle, and sulfur cycle. Numbers of genes per genome matching the annotation are represented by colors in circles. b Syntrophic metabolic model for methanogenesis by a consortium of H2/CO2-using and acetate-using methanogens, Woesearchaeota, anaerobes, and/or aerobes. The habitat is supposed as freshwater sediments
