The phylogenetic and phenotypic analyses and DNA-DNA relatedness indicated that the three strains belong to the same species, that was characterized by a DNA G+C content of 36.5-37.9 mol%, MK-7 as the predominant menaquinone system and iso-C(15 : 0) as a major cellular fatty acid.
Lysinibacillus parviboronicapiens sp. nov., a low-boron-containing bacterium isolated from soil.
A spore-forming, Gram-positive-staining, motile, rod-shaped and low-boron-containing bacterium was isolated from soil and revealed that the strain contained peptidoglycan with lysine, aspartic acid, alanine and glutamic acid, as is the case with other species of the genus Lysinibacillus.
PRELIMINARY ISOLATION AND CHARACTERIZATION OF HALOTOLERANT AND HALOPHILIC BACTERIA FROM SALT MINES OF KARAK, PAKISTAN
This preliminary study showed that the salt mine of Karak are rich in halotolerant / halophilic bacterial population with diverse bacterial communities, which may be utilized in various industrial applications.
CHEMICAL COMPOSITION AND SENSORY EVALUATION OF TEA (CAMELLIA SINENSIS) COMMERCIALIZED IN PAKISTAN
The quality of black and green commercial tea samples was accessed by physicochemical analysis, mineral analysis and sensory evaluation. Significant variations in physicochemical and organoleptic…
A novel highly boron tolerant bacterium, Bacillus boroniphilus sp. nov., isolated from soil, that requires boron for its growth
It is concluded that the three strains isolated from naturally B containing soil of Hisarcik area in the Kutahya Province, Turkey belong to a novel species of the genus Bacillus, the type strain of which is T-15ZT and for which the name, B. boroniphilus sp.

It is suggested that bacteria isolated from saline conditions such as seawater sediment could be used in designing a bioreactor for the treatment of textile effluent containing high concentration of salts.
Gracilibacillus boraciitolerans sp. nov., a highly boron-tolerant and moderately halotolerant bacterium isolated from soil.
The novel isolate, designated T-16X(T), produced spherical or ellipsoidal endospores in a non-bulging or slightly swollen sporangium in a terminal position and survived in a medium containing up to 450 mM boron.
Tepidimonas sediminis sp. nov. and Tepidimonas alkaliphilus sp. nov., two novel moderately thermophilic species isolated from a hot spring
Pairwise comparison of the 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strains YIM 72259T and YIM 72238T are closely related to Tepidimonas ignava SPS-1037T and T. taiwanensis I1-1T, while sharing 98.0% sequence similarity with each other.
Role of Bacillus licheniformis in Phytoremediation of Nickel Contaminated Soil Cultivated with Rice
It is clear from the results that the Bacillus Licheniformis NCCP-59 strain has the ability to protect the plants from the toxic effects of nickel and can be used for the phytoremediation of Ni contaminated soil.
