Dynamics of Seed-Borne Rice Endophytes on Early Plant Growth Stages
Bacterial endophytes are ubiquitous to virtually all terrestrial plants. With the increasing appreciation of studies that unravel the mutualistic interactions between plant and microbes, weExpand

Predicting the HMA-LMA Status in Marine Sponges by Machine Learning
The dichotomy between high microbial abundance (HMA) and low microbial abundance (LMA) sponges has been observed in sponge-microbe symbiosis, although the extent of this pattern remains poorlyExpand

Effects of sample handling and cultivation bias on the specificity of bacterial communities in keratose marine sponges
Complex and distinct bacterial communities inhabit marine sponges and are believed to be essential to host survival, but our present-day inability to domesticate sponge symbionts in the laboratoryExpand

Microbial Communities and Bioactive Compounds in Marine Sponges of the Family Irciniidae—A Review
Marine sponges harbour complex microbial communities of ecological and biotechnological importance. Here, we propose the application of the widespread sponge family Irciniidae as an appropriate modelExpand

Phylogenetically and Spatially Close Marine Sponges Harbour Divergent Bacterial Communities
Recent studies have unravelled the diversity of sponge-associated bacteria that may play essential roles in sponge health and metabolism. Nevertheless, our understanding of this microbiota remainsExpand

Temporal dynamics of prokaryotic communities in the marine sponge Sarcotragus spinosulus
In spite of their putative relevance to host functioning, in‐depth knowledge of sponge microbiome stability over time is scarce. This study tackles the temporal maintenance of bacterial and archaealExpand

Molecular richness and biotechnological potential of bacteria cultured from Irciniidae sponges in the north-east Atlantic.
Several bioactive compounds originally isolated from marine sponges have been later ascribed or suggested to be synthesized by their symbionts. The cultivation of sponge-associated bacteria providesExpand

Antibacterial activity and mutagenesis of sponge-associated Pseudomonas fluorescens H41
Marine sponges (phylum Porifera) are well known to harbour a complex and diverse bacterial community. Some of these sponge-associated bacteria have been shown to be the real producers of secondaryExpand

The Gut Microbiome and Metabolome of Two Riparian Communities in the Amazon
During the last decades it has become increasingly clear that the microbes that live on and in humans are critical for health. The communities they form, termed microbiomes, are involved inExpand

Genomic Features of Mutualistic Plant Bacteria
Comparative genomics is a powerful technique to identify functional elements accountable for species competence that enables it to thrive in specific environmental niche and for species adaptation toExpand
