In this study, we isolated and characterized bacterial strains from ancient (Neogene) permafrost sediment that was permanently frozen for 3.5 million years. The sampling site was located at Mammoth Mountain in the Aldan river valley in Central Yakutia in Eastern Siberia. Analysis of phospolipid fatty acids (PLFA) demonstrated the dominance of bacteria over(More)
A marine bacterial strain, F72T, was isolated from a solitary scleractinian coral, collected in Yap seamounts in the Pacific Ocean. Strain F72T is a Gram-negative, light-yellow-pigmented, motile, rod-shaped bacterium. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strain F72T is related to the genus Novosphingobium and has high 16S rRNA(More)
Deep sea ferromanganese (FeMn) nodules contain metallic mineral resources and have great economic potential. In this study, a combination of culture-dependent and culture-independent (16S rRNA genes clone library and pyrosequencing) methods was used to investigate the bacterial diversity in FeMn nodules from Jiaolong Seamount, the South China Sea. Eleven(More)
Exiguobacterium sp. strain JLM-2 is a thermophilic bacterium isolated from deep-sea ferromanganese (FeMn) nodules. The estimated genome of this strain is 2.9 Mb, with a G+C content of 48.32%. It has a novel circular 15,570-bp plasmid. The draft genome sequence may provide useful information about Mn-microbe interactions and the genetic basis for tolerance(More)
