Genomes of surface isolates of Alteromonas macleodii: the life of a widespread marine opportunistic copiotroph
Alteromonas macleodii is a marine gammaproteobacterium with widespread distribution in temperate or tropical waters. We describe three genomes of isolates from surface waters around Europe (Atlantic,Expand
CO Dehydrogenase Genes Found in Metagenomic Fosmid Clones from the Deep Mediterranean Sea
ABSTRACT The use of carbon monoxide (CO) as a biological energy source is widespread in microbes. In recent years, the role of CO oxidation in superficial ocean waters has been shown to be anExpand
Genomic Diversity of “Deep Ecotype” Alteromonas macleodii Isolates: Evidence for Pan-Mediterranean Clonal Frames
We have compared genomes of Alteromonas macleodii “deep ecotype” isolates from two deep Mediterranean sites and two surface samples from the Aegean and the English Channel. A total of nine differentExpand
Polyclonality of Concurrent Natural Populations of Alteromonas macleodii
We have analyzed a natural population of the marine bacterium, Alteromonas macleodii, from a single sample of seawater to evaluate the genomic diversity present. We performed full genome sequencingExpand
The phylogenetic landscape and nosocomial spread of the multidrug-resistant opportunist Stenotrophomonas maltophilia
Recent studies portend a rising global spread and adaptation of human- or healthcare-associated pathogens. Here, we analyse an international collection of the emerging, multidrug-resistant,Expand
Intra- and Intergenomic Variation of Ribosomal RNA Operons in Concurrent Alteromonas macleodii Strains
Biodiversity estimates based on ribosomal operon sequence diversity rely on the premise that a sequence is characteristic of a single specific taxon or operational taxonomic unit (OTU). Here, we haveExpand
Genomes of Alteromonas australica, a world apart
BackgroundAlteromonas is a genus of marine bacteria that is very easy to isolate and grow in the laboratory. There are genomes available of the species Alteromonas macleodii from different locationsExpand
Whole-genome sequencing reveals nosocomial Clostridioides difficile transmission and a previously unsuspected epidemic scenario
To trace the routes and frequencies of transmission of Clostridioides difficile in a tertiary-care hospital in Madrid (Spain), we sequenced the genomes from all C. difficile isolates collected overExpand
Complete genome sequence of the copiotrophic marine bacterium Alteromonas macleodii strain ATCC 27126T.
The genome of Alteromonas macleodii strain ATCC 27126(T) has been resequenced and closed into a single contig. We describe here the genome of this important and globally distributed marine bacterium.
Pathogenicity of Clinical OXA-48 Isolates and Impact of the OXA-48 IncL Plasmid on Virulence and Bacterial Fitness
OXA-48 is the most common carbapenemase in Enterobacterales in Germany and one of the most frequent carbapenemases worldwide. Several reports have associated blaOXA–48 with a virulent host phenotype.Expand
