Environmental Genome Shotgun Sequencing of the Sargasso Sea
TLDR
Over 1.2 million previously unknown genes represented in these samples, including more than 782 new rhodopsin-like photoreceptors are identified, suggesting substantial oceanic microbial diversity.
The Sorcerer II Global Ocean Sampling Expedition: Northwest Atlantic through Eastern Tropical Pacific
TLDR
A metagenomic study of the marine planktonic microbiota in which surface (mostly marine) water samples were analyzed as part of the Sorcerer II Global Ocean Sampling expedition, which yielded an extensive dataset consisting of 7.7 million sequencing reads.
Biogeographical distribution and diversity of microbes in methane hydrate-bearing deep marine sediments on the Pacific Ocean Margin.
TLDR
Results from cluster and principal component analyses, which include previously reported data from the West and East Pacific Margins, suggest that, for these locations in the Pacific Ocean, prokaryotic communities from methane hydrate-bearing sediment cores are distinct from those in Hydrate-free cores.
Bacterial Manganese Reduction and Growth with Manganese Oxide as the Sole Electron Acceptor
TLDR
The characteristics of this reduction are consistent with a biological, and not an indirect chemical, reduction of manganese, which suggest that this bacterium uses manganic oxide as a terminal electron acceptor.
The Thermal Emission Imaging System (THEMIS) for the Mars 2001 Odyssey Mission
The Thermal Emission Imaging System (THEMIS) on 2001 Mars Odyssey will investigate the surface mineralogy and physical properties of Mars using multi-spectral thermal-infrared images in nine
Electrically conductive bacterial nanowires produced by Shewanella oneidensis strain MR-1 and other microorganisms.
TLDR
Nanowires produced by the oxygenic phototrophic cyanobacterium Synechocystis PCC6803 and the thermophilic, fermentative bacterium Pelotomaculum thermopropionicum reveal that electrically conductive appendages are not exclusive to dissimilatory metal-reducing bacteria and may, in fact, represent a common bacterial strategy for efficient electron transfer and energy distribution.
Microbial Communities Associated with Geological Horizons in Coastal Subseafloor Sediments from the Sea of Okhotsk
TLDR
The porous ash layers of the southwestern Sea of Okhotsk appear to be discrete microbial habitats within the coastal subseafloor clay sediment, which are capable of harboring microbial communities that are very distinct from the communities in the more abundant pelagic clays.
Polyphasic taxonomy of the genus Shewanella and description of Shewanella oneidensis sp. nov.
TLDR
This polyphasic taxonomy takes into account all available phenotypic and genotypic data and integrates them into a consensus classification of Shewanella species based on information generated from this study and obtained from the literature.
Genome sequence of the dissimilatory metal ion–reducing bacterium Shewanella oneidensis
TLDR
This genome sequence represents a critical step in the elucidation of the pathways for reduction (and bioremediation) of pollutants such as uranium (U) and chromium (Cr), and offers a starting point for defining this organism's complex electron transport systems and metal ion–reducing capabilities.
