Here are links to reports that attest to the accurate representation of links from nutrient energy-dependent base pair changes to RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions and protection of organized genomes from virus-driven genomic entropy.

Re: direct interspecies electron transfer (DIET)

HotSeep-1 comprises the genes for the biosynthesis and assembly of type IV pili, as well as large multi-haem cytochrome c proteins, both with high amino acid similarity to respective proteins in Geobacter spp.29 (Extended Data Table 4 and Supplementary Tables 3 and 4). We further investigated expression patterns of these potentially DIET-related genes in comparison to genes for AOM (mcrA) and sulfate reduction (dsrA), representing key catabolic processes in ANME-1 and HotSeep-1 (Fig. 3a, for statistical analyses see Supplementary Table 5). In agreement with the results from total RNA expression (Fig. 1d), a switch from methane to hydrogen (or methane plus hydrogen) as an energy source caused an immediate drop in mcrA and cytochrome expression in ANME, as well as a reduction of the expression of the HotSeep-1 pili and cytochromes.

My comment: Even their acronym (DIET) links ecological variation in nutrients to ecological adaptation via RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions. Now they have bridged the gap between archaea and bacteria.

My comment: This is another example of how to look at pattern recognition from atoms to ecosystems across all living genera in the context of the nutrient-dependent energy that fuels their physiology of reproduction, which is perturbed by viruses.
It is long past time for even the most ignorant of all evolutionary theorists to stop touting their neo-Darwinian pseudoscientific nonsense and examine how ecological variation is linked from nutrient-dependent thermodynamic cycles of protein biosynthesis and degradation to organism-level thermoregulation in species from microbes to humans.

The neo-Darwinian nonsense has been replaced by what is known about energy-dependent base pairing in the context of healthy longevity and virus-perturbed pathology.
