Genome divergence in two Prochlorococcus ecotypes reflects oceanic niche differentiation
The marine unicellular cyanobacterium Prochlorococcus is the smallest-known oxygen-evolving autotroph. It numerically dominates the phytoplankton in the tropical and subtropical oceans, and isExpand

Complete genome sequence of the ammonia-oxidizing bacterium and obligate chemolithoautotroph Nitrosomonas europaea.
Nitrosomonas europaea (ATCC 19718) is a gram-negative obligate chemolithoautotroph that can derive all its energy and reductant for growth from the oxidation of ammonia to nitrite. NitrosomonasExpand

Loss of microsatellite diversity and low effective population size in an overexploited population of New Zealand snapper (Pagrus auratus)
Although the effects of overfishing on species diversity and abundance are well documented, threats to the genetic diversity of marine fish populations have so far been largely neglected. Indeed,Expand

Complete genome sequence of the metabolically versatile photosynthetic bacterium Rhodopseudomonas palustris
Rhodopseudomonas palustris is among the most metabolically versatile bacteria known. It uses light, inorganic compounds, or organic compounds, for energy. It acquires carbon from many types of greenExpand

Gene and translation initiation site prediction in metagenomic sequences
We present MetaProdigal, a metagenomic version of the gene prediction program that can identify genes in short, anonymous coding sequences with a high degree of accuracy. Expand

Molecular genetics and the stock concept in fisheries
The concept of a sustainable yield (SY, Gulland, 1983; Lannan et al., 1989) has dominated fisheries management for almost 50 years. The central idea is that each stock has a harvestable surplus, andExpand

Burkholderia xenovorans LB400 harbors a multi-replicon, 9.73-Mbp genome shaped for versatility
Burkholderia xenovorans LB400 (LB400), a well studied, effective polychlorinated biphenyl-degrader, has one of the two largest known bacterial genomes and is the first nonpathogenic BurkholderiaExpand

Single‐nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) discovery and applications of SNP genotyping in nonmodel organisms
A supplemental issue on the topic of single-nucleotidepolymorphism-enabled (SNP) research in nonmodel organisms is especially timely. In this issue, organisms with reference genomes are considered toExpand
