Clostridium ljungdahlii represents a microbial production platform based on syngas
TLDR
Clostridium ljungdahlii can be used as a unique microbial production platform based on synthesis gas and carbon dioxide/hydrogen mixtures, and successful expression of these genes could be demonstrated, leading to formation of the biofuel. Expand
Escherichia coli Induces DNA Double-Strand Breaks in Eukaryotic Cells
TLDR
Discovery of hybrid peptide-polyketide genotoxins in E. coli will change the view on pathogenesis and commensalism and open new biotechnological applications. Expand
Genome sequence of the bioplastic-producing “Knallgas” bacterium Ralstonia eutropha H16
TLDR
The complete genome sequence of the two chromosomes of R. eutropha H16 is reported, offering the genetic basis for exploiting the biotechnological potential of this organism and providing insights into its remarkable metabolic versatility. Expand
Comparative analysis of the complete genome sequence of the plant growth–promoting bacterium Bacillus amyloliquefaciens FZB42
TLDR
The B. amyloliquefaciens FZB42 genome reveals an unexpected potential to produce secondary metabolites, including the polyketides bacillaene and difficidin, and identifies four giant gene clusters absent in B. subtilis 168. Expand
The genome sequence of the extreme thermophile Thermus thermophilus
TLDR
The complete genome sequence of T. thermophilus HB27 is presented, the first for the genus Thermus and candidates include various proteases and key enzymes of other fundamental biological processes such as DNA replication, DNA repair and RNA maturation. Expand
Complete genome sequence of the acetic acid bacterium Gluconobacter oxydans
TLDR
The genome project revealed the unique biochemistry of G. oxydans with respect to the process of incomplete oxidation and revealed many membrane-bound dehydrogenases that are critical for the incomplete oxidation of biotechnologically important substrates. Expand
How to become a uropathogen: Comparative genomic analysis of extraintestinal pathogenic Escherichia coli strains
TLDR
Analysis of virulence-associated traits expressed in the two UPEC O6 strains, together with genome comparison, demonstrate the marked genetic and phenotypic variability among UPEC. Expand
The genome of Methanosarcina mazei: evidence for lateral gene transfer between bacteria and archaea.
TLDR
Findings might indicate that lateral gene transfer has played an important evolutionary role in forging the physiology of this metabolically versatile methanogen. Expand
Metagenomics of the Deep Mediterranean, a Warm Bathypelagic Habitat
TLDR
The comparison of metagenomic libraries from the deep Mediterranean and the Pacific ALOHA water column showed that bathypelagic Mediterranean communities resemble more mesopelagic communities in the Pacific, and suggests that, in the absence of light, temperature is a major stratifying factor in the oceanic water column, overriding pressure at least over 4000 m deep.
