Abstract Polyploid bacteria are more common than previously believed; however, little is known about the genetic and functional diversity incurred by having multiple chromosomes. We show, using the largest known freshwater bacterium, Achomatium sp., that single cells can host a genetic diversity equal to tha .. [more]
