Biodiversity of Vibrios
SUMMARY Vibrios are ubiquitous and abundant in the aquatic environment. A high abundance of vibrios is also detected in tissues and/or organs of various marine algae and animals, e.g., abalones,Expand

Phylogeny and Molecular Identification of Vibrios on the Basis of Multilocus Sequence Analysis
ABSTRACT We analyzed the usefulness of rpoA, recA, and pyrH gene sequences for the identification of vibrios. We sequenced fragments of these loci from a collection of 208 representative strains,Expand

Ecological diversification in the Bacillus cereus Group.
The Bacillus cereus Group comprises organisms that are widely distributed in the environment and are of health and economic interest. We demonstrate an 'ecotypic' structure of populations in the B.Expand

Re-evaluating prokaryotic species
There is no widely accepted concept of species for prokaryotes, and assignment of isolates to species is based on measures of phenotypic or genome similarity. The current methods for definingExpand

Inferring the evolutionary history of vibrios by means of multilocus sequence analysis.
We performed the first broad study aiming at the reconstruction of the evolutionary history of vibrios by means of multilocus sequence analysis of nine genes. Overall, 14 distinct clades wereExpand

Detection and sequencing of Zika virus from amniotic fluid of fetuses with microcephaly in Brazil: a case study.
BACKGROUND The incidence of microcephaly in Brazil in 2015 was 20 times higher than in previous years. Congenital microcephaly is associated with genetic factors and several causative agents.Expand

Vibrio coralliilyticus sp. nov., a temperature-dependent pathogen of the coral Pocillopora damicornis.
Vibrio sp. YB1T (=ATCC BAA-450T =LMG 20984T), the aetiological agent of tissue lysis of the coral Pocillopora damicornis, was characterized as a novel Vibrio species on the basis of 16S rDNAExpand

Application of multilocus sequence analysis (MLSA) for rapid identification of Enterococcus species based on rpoA and pheS genes.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the use of RNA polymerase alpha subunit (rpoA) and phenylalanyl-tRNA synthase (pheS) gene sequences as species identification tools for enterococci. Ninety-sixExpand
