The genus Pseudomonas currently contains 144 species, making it the genus of Gram-negative bacteria that contains the largest number of species. Currently, multilocus sequence analysis (MLSA) is the preferred method for establishing the phylogeny between species and genera. Four partial gene sequences of housekeeping genes (16S rRNA, gyrB, rpoB, and rpoD)(More)
An entomopathogenic, Gram-negative bacterium isolated from a female specimen of the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster was taxonomically characterised. Strain L48(T) was strictly aerobic, non-fermentative, oxidase and catalase positive, rod-shaped, and motile due to a polar inserted flagellum. Phylogenetic analysis of the 16S rRNA gene and three other(More)
BACKGROUND The genus Pseudomonas comprises more than 100 species of environmental, clinical, agricultural, and biotechnological interest. Although, the recommended method for discriminating bacterial species is DNA-DNA hybridisation, alternative techniques based on multigenic sequence analysis are becoming a common practice in bacterial species(More)
Pseudomonas stutzeri strain NF13 was isolated from a water sample taken at a hydrothermal vent in the Galapagos rift. It was selected for its ability to metabolize sulfur compounds and to grow diazotrophically. Here, we report the first draft genome of a member of genomovar 19 of the species.
The identification of Pseudomonas stutzeri clinical isolates through conventional phenotypic methods was compared with identification through partial rpoD gene sequencing. We observed that commercial phenotypic systems easily confuse P. stutzeri with other Pseudomonas species. We also demonstrated that most of the clinical strains of P. stutzeri herein(More)
Pseudomonas stutzeri strain B1SMN1 is a naphthalene-degrading and simultaneously nitrogen-fixing strain isolated from a wastewater sample taken at a lagooning treatment plant in Menorca (Balearic Islands, Spain). Here we report the draft genome sequence of P. stutzeri B1SMN1. It is composed of a chromosome of an estimated size of 5.2 Mb and two plasmids of(More)
Pseudomonas aeruginosa is an important nosocomial pathogen that exhibits multiple resistances to antibiotics with increasing frequency, making patient treatment more difficult. The aim of the study is to ascertain the population structure of this clinical pathogen in the Hospital Son Llàtzer, Spain. A significant set (56) of randomly selected clinical P.(More)
Pseudomonas stutzeri is a widely distributed species with very high genetic diversity and metabolic capacities, occupying many diverse ecological niches. A collection of 229 P. stutzeri strains isolated from different habitats and geographical locations has been previously characterised phylogenetically by rpoD gene sequencing analysis and in the present(More)
Pseudomonas azotifigens strain 6H33b(T) is a nitrogen fixer isolated from a hyperthermal compost pile in 2005 by Hatayama and collaborators. Here we report the draft genome, which has an estimated size of 5.0 Mb, exhibits an average G+C content of 66.73%, and is predicted to encode 4,536 protein-coding genes and 100 RNA genes.
