Pontibacillus chungwhensis gen. nov., sp. nov., a moderately halophilic Gram-positive bacterium from a solar saltern in Korea.
TLDR
Three moderately halophilic, spore-forming strains were isolated from a solar saltern in Korea and revealed that they represent a novel distinct monophyletic lineage within the phyletic group classically defined as the genus Bacillus and are most closely related to members of the genera Gracilibacillus and Halobacillus.
Metagenomic Analysis of Kimchi, a Traditional Korean Fermented Food
TLDR
In this study, metagenomic approaches were used to monitor changes in bacterial populations, metabolic potential, and overall genetic features of the microbial community during the 29-day fermentation process of Kimchi, and provide insights into the kimchi microbial community.
Discovery of a bacterium, with distinctive dioxygenase, that is responsible for in situ biodegradation in contaminated sediment
Microorganisms maintain the biosphere by catalyzing biogeochemical processes, including biodegradation of organic chemical pollutants. Yet seldom have the responsible agents and their respective
Comparative Survey of Rumen Microbial Communities and Metabolites across One Caprine and Three Bovine Groups, Using Bar-Coded Pyrosequencing and 1H Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy
TLDR
The data indicate that bovine host breeds override diet as the key factor that determines bacterial community and metabolite profiles in the rumen.
Kimchi microflora: history, current status, and perspectives for industrial kimchi production
TLDR
Heterofermentative LAB belonging to the genera Leuconostoc, Lactobacillus, and Weissella are likely to be key players in kKimchi fermentation and have been subjected to genomic and functional studies to gain a better understanding of the fermentation process and beneficial effects of kimchi.
High resolution depth distribution of Bacteria, Archaea, methanotrophs, and methanogens in the bulk and rhizosphere soils of a flooded rice paddy
TLDR
Based on contrasts between absolute abundances of methanogens and methanotrophs at depths sampled across rhizosphere and bulk soils (especially millimeter-scale slices at the surface), it is identified populations of meethanogens (Methanosaeta, Methanoregula, Methanocella, MethANobacterium, and Methanosphaerula), and meethanotrophic populations that are likely physiologically active in situ.
