Distribution of putative denitrifying methane oxidizing bacteria in sediment of a freshwater lake, Lake Biwa.
Methane oxidation coupled to denitrification is mediated by 'Candidatus Methylomirabilis oxyfera', which belongs to the candidate phylum NC10. The distribution of putative denitrifyingExpand

Sulfur-metabolizing bacterial populations in microbial mats of the Nakabusa hot spring, Japan.
At the Nakabusa hot spring, Japan, dense olive-green microbial mats develop in regions where the slightly alkaline, sulfidic effluent has cooled to 65°C. The microbial community of such mats wasExpand
