Rare Hemimastigotes microbes found

Canadian researchers have discovered a new kind of organism that's so different from other living things
that it doesn't fit into the plant kingdom, the animal kingdom, or any other kingdom used to classify known
organisms.Two species of the microscopic organisms, called hemimastigotes, were found in dirt collected
on a whim during a hike in Nova Scotia by Dalhousie University graduate student Yana Eglit.A genetic analysis
shows they're more different from other organisms than animals and fungi (which are in different kingdoms)
are from each other, representing a completely new part of the tree of life.

Let's hope they are the source of a new breed of antibiotics.
