Alteromonas as a key agent of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon biodegradation in crude oil-contaminated coastal sediment.
Strain SN2 and its relatives are site natives--key players in PAH degradation and adapted to winter conditions in these contaminated sea-tidal-flat sediments, resulting in a 20-fold increase in the abundance of bacteria related to strain SN2 during the winter season. Expand
Microbial succession and metabolite changes during fermentation of dongchimi, traditional Korean watery kimchi.
Monitoring of the fermentation process of watery kimchi revealed an increase in bacterial abundance during the early fermentation period and the pH values concurrently decreased rapidly without any initial pH increase, suggesting that bacteria and Saccharomyces have a direct antagonistic relationship.

Comparative Genomics Reveals Adaptation by Alteromonas sp. SN2 to Marine Tidal-Flat Conditions: Cold Tolerance and Aromatic Hydrocarbon Metabolism
Experiments proved that strain SN2 was far more cold tolerant, especially at 5°C, than the other two strains, and consistent with the HGT hypothesis, a total of 15 genomic islands in strainSN2 likely confer ecological fitness traits specific to the adaptation of strain SN1 to its seasonally cold sea-tidal flat habitat.

On the basis of phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and molecular properties, strain GY20(T) was shown to represent a novel species within the genus Maribacteria, for which the name Maribacter aestuarii sp. Expand
Comparative Genomic Analysis and Benzene, Toluene, Ethylbenzene, and o-, m-, and p-Xylene (BTEX) Degradation Pathways of Pseudoxanthomonas spadix BD-a59
The elevated abundances of dioxygenases, monooxygenase, and rRNA operons in strain BD-a59 (relative to strain 11-1), as well as other genomic characteristics, likely confer traits that enhance ecological fitness by enabling strain BD -a59 to degrade hydrocarbons in the soil environment. Expand
Aestuariibaculum suncheonense gen. nov., sp. nov., a marine bacterium of the family Flavobacteriaceae isolated from a tidal flat and emended descriptions of the genera Gaetbulibacter and Tamlana.
Phylogenetic inference showed that strain SC17(T) formed a distinct phyletic lineage within the family Flavobacteriaceae and was most closely related to members of the genera Gaetbulibacter and Tamlana with 95.0-95.8 % sequence similarity. Expand
Gramella aestuarii sp. nov., isolated from a tidal flat, and emended description of Gramella echinicola.
A Gram-staining-negative, yellow-pigmented, strictly aerobic bacterial strain motile by gliding, isolated from a tidal flat at Boseong, Korea, was shown to represent a novel species of the genus Gramella, for which the name GrAMElla aestuarii sp. Expand
Altererythrobacter gangjinensis sp. nov., a marine bacterium isolated from a tidal flat.
On the basis of phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and molecular features, strain KJ7(T), isolated from a tidal flat of the Gangjin bay in South Korea, represents a novel species of the genus Altererythrobacter. Expand
Metatranscriptomic analysis of lactic acid bacterial gene expression during kimchi fermentation.
Barcode-based 16S rRNA gene pyrosequencing showed that the kimchi microbiome was dominated by six lactic acid bacteria (LAB), Leuconostoc (Lc.) mesenteroides, Lactobacillus (Lb.) sakei, WeissellaExpand
Isolation of a BTEX-degrading bacterium, Janibacter sp. SB2, from a sea-tidal flat and optimization of biodegradation conditions.
An enrichment culture was established using seawater containing BTEX to isolate a BTEX-degrading bacterium from contaminated sea-tidal flat and a quadratic polynomial mathematical model was suggested to optimize the degradation of BTEX by strain SB2 in a tidal flat. Expand
