Metagenomic analysis of two enhanced biological phosphorus removal (EBPR) sludge communities
Enhanced biological phosphorus removal (EBPR) is one of the best-studied microbially mediated industrial processes because of its ecological and economic relevance. Despite this, it is not wellExpand

Comparative Metagenomic and Metatranscriptomic Analysis of Hindgut Paunch Microbiota in Wood- and Dung-Feeding Higher Termites
Termites effectively feed on many types of lignocellulose assisted by their gut microbial symbionts. To better understand the microbial decomposition of biomass with varied chemical profiles, it isExpand

A novel ecological role of the Firmicutes identified in thermophilic microbial fuel cells
Significant effort is currently focused on microbial fuel cells (MFCs) as a source of renewable energy. Most studies concentrate on operation at mesophilic temperatures. However, anaerobic digestionExpand

Metabolic potential of a single cell belonging to one of the most abundant lineages in freshwater bacterioplankton
Actinobacteria within the acI lineage are often numerically dominating in freshwater ecosystems, where they can account for >50% of total bacteria in the surface water. However, they remainExpand

Comparative single-cell genomics reveals potential ecological niches for the freshwater acI Actinobacteria lineage
Members of the acI lineage of Actinobacteria are the most abundant microorganisms in most freshwater lakes; however, our understanding of the keys to their success and their role in carbon andExpand

A bacterial metapopulation adapts locally to phage predation despite global dispersal.
Using a combination of bacterial and phage-targeted metagenomics, we analyzed two geographically remote sludge bioreactors enriched in a single bacterial species Candidatus Accumulibacter phosphatisExpand

Proteome insights into the symbiotic relationship between a captive colony of Nasutitermes corniger and its hindgut microbiome
We analyzed the metaproteome of the bacterial community resident in the hindgut paunch of the wood-feeding ‘higher’ termite (Nasutitermes) and identified 886 proteins, 197 of which have knownExpand

Spirochaeta cellobiosiphila sp. nov., a facultatively anaerobic, marine spirochaete.
A facultatively anaerobic, marine spirochaete, designated strain SIP1(T), was isolated from interstitial water from a cyanobacteria-containing microbial mat. Cells of strain SIP1(T) wereExpand

Identification of the syntrophic partners in a coculture coupling anaerobic methanol oxidation to Fe(III) reduction.
From enrichments with methanol and ferric pyrophosphate a coculture was isolated which coupled methanol oxidation to carbon dioxide with the reduction of Fe(III) to Fe(II). 16S rRNA gene analysis ofExpand
