The class Actinobacteria has been a goldmine for the discovery of antibiotics and has attracted interest from both academics and industries. However, an absence of novel approaches during the last few decades has limited the discovery of new microbial natural products useful for industries. Scientists are now focusing on the ecological aspects of diverse… (More)
Two aerobic, Gram-positive actinomycetes, designated YIM 77502T and YIM 77510T, were isolated from geothermally heated soil of Tengchong county, Yunnan province, south-west China. The taxonomic position of strains YIM 77502T and YIM 77510T were investigated by a polyphasic approach. Phylogenetic analyses based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strains… (More)
Two novel Gram-stain negative, non-motile, rod-shaped and aerobic bacterial strains, designated YIM 77920T and YIM 77921T, were isolated from freshwater sediment of Jiuxiang cave, a tourism cave located in Yiliang county, Yunnan province, south-west China. The 16S rRNA gene sequences of strains YIM 77920T and YIM 77921T exhibited sequence similarities of… (More)
Jiangella gansuensis strain YIM 002T is the type strain of the type species of the genus Jiangella, which is at the present time composed of five species, and was isolated from desert soil sample in Gansu Province (China). The five strains of this genus are clustered in a monophyletic group when closer actinobacterial genera are used to infer a 16S rRNA… (More)
We report the draft genome sequence of Jiangella alkaliphila KCTC 19222(T), isolated from cave soil in Jeju, Republic of Korea. This genome sequence, together with the previously sequenced J. gansuensis strain DSM 44835(T), identified from a desert environmental source, will give us a better understanding of the school of "evolutionary taxonomy."
