If you don’t know Dr. Wrighton, well, you should. She is brilliant and has done some phenomenal work on microbial diversity. See her Google Scholar page here and her faculty page here. And check out the paper I co-authored with her (and many others): Extraordinary phylogenetic diversity and metabolic versatility in aquifer sediment.
