This study provides a global expression map of one of the largest transporter families (transportome) and an invaluable tool to both understand their solute specificity and the relationships between members of large paralogous families.

This study represents the first genetic description of a prokaryotic hydroxyproline transport system, and the ability to metabolize hydroxy Proline may contribute significantly toward the ecological success of plant-associated bacteria such as the rhizobia.
Niche partitioning within genus Nitrospira is affected by environmental copper concentration

Examination of the effects of copper on niche partitioning within the genus Nitrospira in full-scale filters suggests that copper availability plays a role in determining the diversity and distribution of NitroSpira spp in nitrifying environments.
Galactitol catabolism in Sinorhizobium meliloti is dependent on a chromosomally encoded sorbitol dehydrogenase and a pSymB-encoded operon necessary for tagatose catabolism

The data suggest that several transport systems, including the chromosomal ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporter smoEFGK, contribute to the uptake of galactitol, while the adjacent gene smoS encodes a protein for oxidation of Galactitol into tagatose, which is further metabolized by the enzymes of the Entner–Doudoroff pathway.

Niche differentiation and evolution of comammox Nitrospira through a comparative genomics analysis
- Alejandro Palomo, J. Fowler, A. Pedersen, T. Sicheritz-Pontén, B. Smets
A comparative genomics analysis revealed distinct genetic capabilities of the different comammox clades and canonical Nitrospira which can help to explain the coexistence and niche partitioning of Nitro Spira spp.

Microbial biodiversity enhances micropollutants biotransformation in Moving Bed Biofilm Reactors (MBBR) with controlled biofilm thickness
- E. Torresi, J. Fowler, B. Plósz
- Engineering, Biology
The results suggested that biofilm technologies with thicker biofilms and thus exhibiting higher biodiversity may be an effective solution to maximize biotransformation and removal of several micropollutants.
