Improved group-specific PCR primers for denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis analysis of the genetic diversity of complex microbial communities
Phylum- and class-specific PCR primers were tested for the production of clone libraries and for denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE) analysis of complex bacterial communities. Primers were… Expand

Recent advancements in the nanotechnology industry have seen a growing interest in integrating silver nanoparticles (Ag-NPs) into consumer and medical products. To date, there has been little… Expand
Genetic diversity of marine Synechococcus and co-occurring cyanophage communities: evidence for viral control of phytoplankton.
Unicellular cyanobacteria of the genus Synechococcus are a major component of the picophytoplankton and make a substantial contribution to primary productivity in the oceans. Here we provide evidence… Expand
Practical considerations for conducting ecotoxicity test methods with manufactured nanomaterials: what have we learnt so far?
This review paper reports the consensus of a technical workshop hosted by the European network, NanoImpactNet (NIN). The workshop aimed to review the collective experience of working at the bench… Expand
Culturing marine bacteria – an essential prerequisite for biodiscovery
The potential for using marine microbes for biodiscovery is severely limited by the lack of laboratory cultures. It is a long‐standing observation that standard microbiological techniques only… Expand
Variation in fatty acid composition of Arthrospira (Spirulina) strains
A study of the fatty acid composition was made for 35 Arthrospira strains, concentrating on the most abundant fatty acids, the two polyunsaturated C18 acids, linoleic and γ-linolenic acid, and… Expand
The Taxonomic and Functional Diversity of Microbes at a Temperate Coastal Site: A ‘Multi-Omic’ Study of Seasonal and Diel Temporal Variation
How microbial communities change over time in response to the environment is poorly understood. Previously a six-year time series of 16S rRNA V6 data from the Western English Channel demonstrated… Expand
Arthrospira ('Spirulina') strains from four continents are resolved into only two clusters, based on amplified ribosomal DNA restriction analysis of the internally transcribed spacer.

We present the results of a phylogenetic study, based on amplified ribosomal DNA restriction analysis of the rDNA operon, of 37 Arthrospira ('Spirulina') cultivated clonal strains from four… Expand
REVERSAL OF HELIX ORIENTATION IN THE CYANOBACTERIUM ARTHROSPIRA 1
A survey of the morphological characters of 36 clonal axenic strains of Arthrospira showed that 34 had helical and 2 had straight trichomes. Of those with helical trichomes, five were right‐handed… Expand
Ocean acidification shows negligible impacts on high-latitude bacterial community structure in coastal pelagic mesocosms
The impact of ocean acidification and carbonation on microbial community structure was assessed during a large-scale in situ costal pelagic mesocosm study, included as part of the EPOCA 2010 Arctic… Expand
