The moderately halophilic heterotrophic aerobic bacteria form a diverse group of microorganisms and approaches to the study of genetic processes have recently been developed, opening the way toward an understanding of haloadaptation at the molecular level.
Proposed Minimal Standards for Description of New Taxa in the Order Halobacteriales
The minimal standards include information on the following characteristics: cell morphology; motility; pigmentation; the requirement for salt to prevent cell lysis; optimum NaCl and MgCl2 concentrations for growth and range of salt concentrations enabling growth; temperature and pH ranges for growth.

A large number of the strains could be tentatively assigned to the genus Vibrio, suggesting that this may be an abundant taxon of moderately halophilic Gram-negative rods in solar salterns.
Halobacillus gen. nov., with Descriptions of Halobacillus litoralis sp. nov. and Halobacillus trueperi sp. nov., and Transfer of Sporosarcina halophila to Halobacillus halophilus comb. nov.
It is proposed that a new genus, Halobacillus, should be created; this genus includes Sporosarcina halophilus as the type species, as well as HalobACillus litoralis DSM 10405T (= SL-4T) and HalOBacillus trueperi DSM 10404T (=SL-5T).
Proposed minimal standards for the use of genome data for the taxonomy of prokaryotes.
The minimal standards for the quality of genome sequences and how they can be applied for taxonomic purposes are described.

The minimal standards are considered as guidelines for authors to prepare descriptions of novel taxa and have been endorsed by the International Committee on Systematics of Prokaryotes Subcommittee on the Taxonomy of Halomonadaceae.
Proposed minimal standards for describing new taxa of aerobic, endospore-forming bacteria.
These minimal standards are recommended as guidelines to assist authors in the preparation of descriptions for novel taxa to encourage broad polyphasic characterization and the construction of descriptions that are practically useful in routine diagnostic laboratories.
Phylogeny of the family Halomonadaceae based on 23S and 165 rDNA sequence analyses.

- BiologyInternational journal of systematic and…
The phylogenetic status of the family Halomonadaceae, which consists of the genera Halomonas, Chromohalobacter and Zymobacter, is evaluated by comparative 23S and 16S rDNA analyses and it is proposed to include the genus Carnimonas, with its single species Carnamonas nigrificans, in thefamily Halomondaceae.
Emended descriptions of genera of the family Halobacteriaceae.
Emended descriptions of the genera Halobacterium, Haloarcula, Halococcus, Haloferax, Halorubrum, Haloterrigena, Natrialba, Halobiforma and NatronorUBrum are proposed.
Sequence analysis of an Archaeal virus isolated from a hypersaline lake in Inner Mongolia, China
The genomic sequence of a previously undescribed archaeal virus, BJ1, described in this paper has a very low sequence identity to any previously described virus.
