Humboldt’s spa: microbial diversity is controlled by temperature in geothermal environments
TLDR
It is demonstrated that temperature exerts a strong control on microbial diversity when considered over most of the temperature range within which life is possible. Expand
Distribution and diversity of Verrucomicrobia methanotrophs in geothermal and acidic environments.
TLDR
There appears to be a thermophilicgroup and a mesophilic group of methanotrophic Verrucomicrobia, however, both were detected only in acidic geothermal environments. Expand
Methanotrophic bacteria in oilsands tailings ponds of northern Alberta
TLDR
The SIP-PCR results demonstrated that the Methylocaldum and Methylomonas spp. Expand
Integron Gene Cassettes and Degradation of Compounds Associated with Industrial Waste: The Case of the Sydney Tar Ponds
TLDR
It is shown that a heavily impacted estuary, exposed for almost a century to products of coal and steel industries, has developed a rich and unique cassette metagenome, containing genes likely to aid in the catabolism of compounds associated with industrial waste found there. Expand
Stable-Isotope Probing Identifies Uncultured Planctomycetes as Primary Degraders of a Complex Heteropolysaccharide in Soil
TLDR
The results indicate that some uncultured bacteria in soils may be adapted to using complex heteropolysaccharides for growth and suggest that the use of these substrates may provide a means for culturing new species. Expand
Fast and Simple Analysis of MiSeq Amplicon Sequencing Data with MetaAmp
TLDR
The MetaAmp pipeline for processing of SSU rRNA gene and other non-coding or protein-c coding amplicon sequencing data by investigators that are inexperienced with bioinformatics procedures is presented. Expand
Detection of autotrophic verrucomicrobial methanotrophs in a geothermal environment using stable isotope probing
TLDR
A modified SIP technique to identify active methanotrophic Verrucomicrobia in the environment by labeling with 13CO2 and 13CH4, individually and in combination is developed and used in combination with SIP, providing a tool to detect verrucomicrobial meethanotrophs in other ecosystems. Expand
Anaerobic carboxydotrophic bacteria in geothermal springs identified using stable isotope probing
TLDR
The results show that bacteria capable of using CO as a carbon source are common in geothermal springs, and that thermophilic carboxydotrophs are probably already quite well known from cultivation studies. Expand
Methanotrophic bacteria in warm geothermal spring sediments identified using stable-isotope probing.
TLDR
The results suggest that diverse methanotroph groups are adapted to warm environments, including the Methylocapsa-Methylocella- Methyloferula group, which has previously only been detected in cooler sites. Expand
Selective Pressure of Temperature on Competition and Cross-Feeding within Denitrifying and Fermentative Microbial Communities
TLDR
Temperature was shown to have a strong selective effect, not only on the populations performing either process, but also on the nature of their ecological interactions, as shown in coastal marine sediments. Expand
