The diversity of transposase sequences in the Lost City metagenome is much greater than 16S rRNA diversity. Each operational taxonomic unit (OTU) cluster of sequences (defined as 3% nucleotide sequence difference) is listed on the X-axis, and the number of reads with sequences in each OTU are plotted on the Y-axis. The two transposase families, retroviral integrase (red points) and transposase 11 (green), each have >100 OTUs, whereas there are only 22 16S rRNA OTUs (black) representing a small number of reads.
