Proposed minimal standards for the use of genome data for the taxonomy of prokaryotes.
TLDR
The minimal standards for the quality of genome sequences and how they can be applied for taxonomic purposes are described.
Recommended minimal standards for describing new taxa of the family Halomonadaceae.
TLDR
The minimal standards are considered as guidelines for authors to prepare descriptions of novel taxa and have been endorsed by the International Committee on Systematics of Prokaryotes Subcommittee on the Taxonomy of Halomonadaceae.
Phylogeny of the family Halomonadaceae based on 23S and 165 rDNA sequence analyses.
TLDR
The phylogenetic status of the family Halomonadaceae, which consists of the genera Halomonas, Chromohalobacter and Zymobacter, is evaluated by comparative 23S and 16S rDNA analyses and it is proposed to include the genus Carnimonas, with its single species Carnamonas nigrificans, in thefamily Halomondaceae.
Emended descriptions of genera of the family Halobacteriaceae.
TLDR
Emended descriptions of the genera Halobacterium, Haloarcula, Halococcus, Haloferax, Halorubrum, Haloterrigena, Natrialba, Halobiforma and NatronorUBrum are proposed.
Marinobacter lipolyticus sp. nov., a novel moderate halophile with lipolytic activity.
TLDR
A novel, moderately halophilic bacterium that displays lipolytic activity has been isolated and characterized and the inclusion of strain SM19(T) in the genus Marinobacter as a novel species is proposed, with the name Marinob bacterium lipolyticsus sp.
Proposal of Cobetia marina gen. nov., comb. nov., within the family Halomonadaceae, to include the species Halomonas marina.
TLDR
The description of Halomonas marina is emended, including new features and its placement in a new genus, Cobetia gen. nov. within the family Halomonadaceae is proposed.
Multilocus sequence analysis of the central clade of the genus Vibrio by using the 16S rRNA, recA, pyrH, rpoD, gyrB, rctB and toxR genes.
TLDR
Although the seven concatenation genes gave the best correlation, the concatenated sequences of rpoD, rctB and toxR have the practical advantage of showing a considerable gap between the maximal interspecies similarity and the minimal intraspecies similarity recorded, meaning that they can be used quite conveniently for species identification of vibrios.
Bacillus marismortui sp. nov., a new moderately halophilic species from the Dead Sea.
TLDR
The isolates isolated from enrichments prepared from Dead Sea water samples collected 57 years ago should be regarded as members of a new species of the genus Bacillus, for which the name Bacillus marismortui sp.
The Family Rhodobacteraceae
TLDR
The Rhodobacteraceae are, fundamentally, aquatic bacteria that frequently thrive in marine environments and comprise mainly aerobic photo- and chemoheterotrophs but also purple non-sulfur bacteria which perform photosynthesis in anaerobic environments.
Thalassobius mediterraneus gen. nov., sp. nov., and reclassification of Ruegeria gelatinovorans as Thalassobius gelatinovorus comb. nov.
TLDR
It was concluded that strain XSM19T represents a new genus and novel species, for which the name Thalassobius mediterraneus sp.
