EzTaxon: a web-based tool for the identification of prokaryotes based on 16S ribosomal RNA gene sequences.
16S rRNA gene sequences have been widely used for the identification of prokaryotes. However, the flood of sequences of non-type strains and the lack of a peer-reviewed database for 16S rRNA geneExpand

Towards a taxonomic coherence between average nucleotide identity and 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity for species demarcation of prokaryotes.
Among available genome relatedness indices, average nucleotide identity (ANI) is one of the most robust measurements of genomic relatedness between strains, and has great potential in the taxonomy ofExpand

Nocardiopsis kunsanensis sp. nov., a moderately halophilic actinomycete isolated from a saltern.
A moderately halophilic actinomycete, designated HA-9T, was isolated from a saltern in Kunsan, Republic of Korea, and was the subject of polyphasic identification. Analysis of 16S rDNA indicated thatExpand
