Neither the mechanisms by which genomic heterogeneity emerges within naturally occurring microbial populations, nor how it drives the partitioning of ecological niches are well understood. Yet the increasing number of environmental metagenomes with astonishing depth of sequencing offer new opportunities to investigate evolutionary processes acting upon them, and link genomic variation to predicted tertiary structures of genes to gain biochemical insights.
