Water is an important environment for human survival. 71% of the earth’s surface is the ocean, which stores 97% of the earth’s water. The remaining 2% of the water is stored in glaciers and poles. Wherever there is water, there will be microbes. Water microbes mainly come from the soil, air, animal and plant residues, excrement, industrial production wastewater and municipal domestic sewage, etc.
According to the ecological characteristics of microbes in water bodies, they can be divided into two types. The first is the clean water aquatic microbes, which are mainly chemical autotrophic or photoautotrophic microbes, and they can grow in clean water that is not rich in organic substances, such as Thiobacillus, Cyanobacteria, Gallionella ferruginea, etc. The second is saprophytic aquatic microbes, which are mostly non-spore and gram-negative bacilli. Water also often becomes an important transmission route for pathogenic microbes of humans, animals and plants. Due to differences in human activities, temperature, oxygen content, and water fluidity, the types, quantities and distribution characteristics of microbes in various water bodies are quite different.
Based on the 16S rRNA gene, 18S rRNA gene and ITS sequence, the next-generation sequencing technology is used to analyze the diversity of water microbes, and to explore the main factors affecting the microbial community and diversity in different water environments. There are a great number and varieties of microbes in water bodies. By analyzing the population structure and diversity of water bodies as well as studying their dynamic changes, it is possible to fully understand the composition of water microbes, to provide a reliable basis for optimizing community structure and regulating community functions.
