    Miscellaneous crenarchaeotal group (MCG) and marine benthic group-D (MBG-D) are among the most numerous archaea in sea-floor sediments; single-cell genomics reveals that these archaea belong to new branches of the archaeal tree and probably have a role in protein remineralization in anoxic marine sediments.
