Fluorescence in situ hybridization for the identification of environmental microbes.
This protocol presents methods for the phylogenetic identification of microorganisms in environmental samples (e.g., water and sediments) by means of fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) withExpand

Shift from widespread symbiont infection of host tissues to specific colonization of gills in juvenile deep-sea mussels
The deep-sea mussel Bathymodiolus harbors chemosynthetic bacteria in its gills that provide it with nutrition. Symbiont colonization is assumed to occur in early life stages by uptake from theExpand

Microbial communities along biogeochemical gradients in a hydrocarbon-contaminated aquifer.
Micro-organisms are known to degrade a wide range of toxic substances. How the environment shapes microbial communities in polluted ecosystems and thus influences degradation capabilities is not yetExpand

Forever competent: deep-sea bivalves are colonized by their chemosynthetic symbionts throughout their lifetime.
Symbiotic bivalves at hydrothermal vents and cold seeps host chemosynthetic bacteria intracellularly in gill cells. In bivalves, the gills grow continuously throughout their lifetime by forming newExpand

Expression patterns of mRNAs for methanotrophy and thiotrophy in symbionts of the hydrothermal vent mussel Bathymodiolus puteoserpentis
The hydrothermal vent mussel Bathymodiolus puteoserpentis (Mytilidae) from the Mid-Atlantic Ridge hosts symbiotic sulfur- and methane-oxidizing bacteria in its gills. In this study, we investigatedExpand

Fluorescence in situ hybridization (CARD-FISH) of microorganisms in hydrocarbon contaminated aquifer sediment samples.
Groundwater ecosystems are the most important sources of drinking water worldwide but they are threatened by contamination and overexploitation. Petroleum spills account for the most common source ofExpand

Vitamin and Amino Acid Auxotrophy in Anaerobic Consortia Operating under Methanogenic Conditions
Microbial interactions between Archaea and Bacteria mediate many important chemical transformations in the biosphere from degrading abundant polymers to synthesis of toxic compounds. Two of the mostExpand

The influence of light and water mass on bacterial population dynamics in the Amundsen Sea Polynya
Despite being perpetually cold, seasonally ice-covered and dark, the coastal Southern Ocean is highly productive and harbors a diverse microbiota. During the austral summer, ice-free coastal patchesExpand
