Presence of key functional genes (red) in MAGs involved in various biogeochemical cycling processes. Abbreviations: membrane bound nitrate reductase (narG), nitrite reductase (nir), nitric oxide reductase (norB) and nitrous oxide reductase (nosZ), dissimilatory sulfite reductase subunit A and B (DsrAB), sulfur oxidation pathway (Sox), heme-degrading monooxygenase (hmoA), Embden-Meyerhof pathway (EMP), pentose phosphate pathway (PPP), Entner-Doudoroff pathway (ED), tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle. Note: The CO2 fixation pathways refer to the presence of genes involved either in 3-hydroxyproprionate/4-hydroxybutyrate or reductive TCA pathway. The other pathways such as EMP and TCA indicated that majority of the associated genes (>‚ÄČ70%) were identified in the genome
