Sulfur Metabolizing Microbes Dominate Microbial Communities in Andesite-Hosted Shallow-Sea Hydrothermal Systems
It was concluded that sulfur-reducing and sulfide-oxidizing chemolithoautotrophs accounted for most of the primary biomass synthesis and that microbial sulfur metabolism fueled microbial energy flow and element cycling in the shallow hydrothermal systems off the coast of NE Taiwan.
Distribution and Functions of TonB-Dependent Transporters in Marine Bacteria and Environments: Implications for Dissolved Organic Matter Utilization
The results of this study confirm the ecological importance of TBDTs in DOM assimilation for bacteria in marine environments owing to a wide range of substrate utilization potential in the ubiquitous Gammaproteobacteria and CFB group bacteria.
Functional Metagenomic Investigations of Microbial Communities in a Shallow-Sea Hydrothermal System
Analysis of two high-throughput pyrosequencing metagenomic datasets from the vent and the surface water in the shallow-sea hydrothermal system offshore NE Taiwan showed that the deep-sea metagenomes contained some genes similar to those present in other extreme environments.
Gramella flava sp. nov., a member of the family Flavobacteriaceae isolated from seawater.
On the basis of phenotypic, genotypic and taxonomic data presented, strain JLT2011(T) is considered to represent a novel species of the genus Gramella, for which the name GrAMElla flava sp.

Significance Carbon fixation in the dark ocean is sustained primarily by nitrifying populations, providing new organic matter to heterotrophic food webs. However, the flux of new carbon through
Spirosoma soli sp. nov., isolated from biological soil crusts.
The results of phenotypic properties and phylogenetic distinctiveness supported that strain MIMBbqt12T represents a novel species of the genus Spirosoma, for which the name SpIrosoma soli sp.
Hymenobacter terrenus sp. nov., isolated from biological soil crusts.
The results of phylogenetic, chemotaxonomic and phenotypic characterization indicated that strain MIMtkLc17T can be distinguished from all known species of the genus Hymenobacter and represents a novel species of this genus, for which the name Hymanobacter terrenus sp.
Pelagibaca abyssi sp. nov., of the family Rhodobacteraceae, isolated from deep-sea water
Based on phenotypic properties and phylogenetic analysis, the name Pelagibaca abyssi sp.
Erratum to: Parvularcula oceanus sp. nov., isolated from deep-sea water of the Southeastern Pacific Ocean
In the light of the phenotypic characteristics, chemotaxonomic features and phylogenetic evidence gathered in this study, strain JLT2013T should be classified as a novel species in the genus Parvularcula.
Characterization of Potential Polysaccharide Utilization Systems in the Marine Bacteroidetes Gramella Flava JLT2011 Using a Multi-Omics Approach
A comparison of polysaccharide decomposition within a genus is presented and current knowledge on the diversity and function of PULs in marine Bacteroidetes is expanded, thereby deepening the authors' understanding of their ecological role in poly Saccharide remineralization in the marine system.
