We describe a deep-branching lineage of marine Actinobacteria with very low GC content (33%) and the smallest free living cells described yet (cell volume ca. 0.013 μm(3)), even smaller than the cosmopolitan marine photoheterotroph, 'Candidatus Pelagibacter ubique'. These microbes are highly related to 16S rRNA sequences retrieved by PCR from the Pacific(More)
In embedded systems, the computing resources are often scarce and several control tasks may have to share the same computer. In this paper , we assume that a set of feedback controllers should be implemented on a single-CPU platform. We study the problem of optimal sampling period assignment, where the goal is to assign sampling rates to the controllers so(More)
BACKGROUND The increasing availability of gene sequences of prokaryotic species in samples extracted from all kind of locations allows addressing the study of the influence of environmental patterns in prokaryotic biodiversity. We present a comprehensive study to address the potential existence of environmental preferences of prokaryotic taxa and the(More)
The free-living planktonic freshwater bacterium Polynucleobacter necessarius subspecies asymbioticus (> 99% 16S rRNA similarity) represents a taxon with a cosmopolitan distribution and apparently ubiquitous occurrence in lentic freshwater habitats. We tested for intra-taxon biogeographic patterns by combining cultivation-independent and cultivation methods.(More)
The present study shows the occurrence of remarkable interannual variation in the meteorological conditions at Byers Peninsula (Livingston Island, South Shetlands Islands, Antarctica), in which one of the summers was significantly colder than the others. Within this climatic scenario, a limnological study was carried out at Lake Limnopolar during three(More)
—A self-triggered controller is characterized, in general , by a non-periodic sequence of job activations. And each job execution, apart from performing sampling, control algorithm computation and actuation, calculates the next job activation time as a function of the plant state. This paper describes the implementation of self-triggered controllers in(More)
Coastal lagoons, both hypersaline and freshwater, are common, but still understudied ecosystems. We describe, for the first time, using high throughput sequencing, the extant microbiota of two large and representative Mediterranean coastal lagoons, the hypersaline Mar Menor, and the freshwater Albufera de Valencia, both located on the south eastern coast of(More)
We carried out a detailed study in five stratified lakes in the karstic regions of NE Spain along a redox gradient combining vertical profiles of inorganic carbon dioxide fixation and analysis of microbial (bacteria and archaea) community composition determined by 16S rRNA gene fingerprinting (DGGE), microscopic counts, and pigment analysis. High rates of(More)
A self-triggered controller is characterized, in general, by a non-periodic sequence of job activations. Each job execution , apart from performing sampling, control algorithm computation and actuation, calculates the next job activation time as a function of the plant state. This demo paper presents an implementation of self-triggered controllers.(More)
This paper presents a novel approach to networked control systems (NCS) analysis and design that provides increased control performance for a set of control loops that exchange control data over the Controller Area Network (CAN). This is achieved by enabling the following functionality for each control loop: first, standard periodic messaging is guaranteed(More)
