Environmental Genome Shotgun Sequencing of the Sargasso Sea
We have applied “whole-genome shotgun sequencing” to microbial populations collected en masse on tangential flow and impact filters from seawater samples collected from the Sargasso Sea near Bermuda.Expand

The Sorcerer II Global Ocean Sampling Expedition: Northwest Atlantic through Eastern Tropical Pacific
The world's oceans contain a complex mixture of micro-organisms that are for the most part, uncharacterized both genetically and biochemically. We report here a metagenomic study of the marineExpand

Biogeographical distribution and diversity of microbes in methane hydrate-bearing deep marine sediments on the Pacific Ocean Margin.
The deep subseafloor biosphere is among the least-understood habitats on Earth, even though the huge microbial biomass therein plays an important role for potential long-term controls on globalExpand

Bacterial Manganese Reduction and Growth with Manganese Oxide as the Sole Electron Acceptor
Microbes that couple growth to the reduction of manganese could play an important role in the biogeochemistry of certain anaerobic environments. Such a bacterium, Alteromonas putrefaciens MR-1,Expand

Electrically conductive bacterial nanowires produced by Shewanella oneidensis strain MR-1 and other microorganisms.
Shewanella oneidensis MR-1 produced electrically conductive pilus-like appendages called bacterial nanowires in direct response to electron-acceptor limitation. Mutants deficient in genes for c-typeExpand

Application of Fe isotopes to tracing the geochemical and biological cycling of Fe
Over 100 high-precision Fe isotope analyses of rocks and minerals are now available, which constrain the range in d 56 Fe values (per mil deviations in 56 Fe/ 54 Fe ratios) in nature from � 2.50xtoExpand

Polyphasic taxonomy of the genus Shewanella and description of Shewanella oneidensis sp. nov.
The genus Shewanella has been studied since 1931 with regard to a variety of topics of relevance to both applied and environmental microbiology. Recent years have seen the introduction of a largeExpand

Microbial Communities Associated with Geological Horizons in Coastal Subseafloor Sediments from the Sea of Okhotsk
ABSTRACT Microbial communities from a subseafloor sediment core from the southwestern Sea of Okhotsk were evaluated by performing both cultivation-dependent and cultivation-independent (molecular)Expand

Genome sequence of the dissimilatory metal ion–reducing bacterium Shewanella oneidensis
Shewanella oneidensis is an important model organism for bioremediation studies because of its diverse respiratory capabilities, conferred in part by multicomponent, branched electron transportExpand
