Overview of the Marine Roseobacter Lineage
Representatives of the Roseobacter clade stand out as representing one of the most readily cultivated of the major marine lineages, and are serving as the foundation for an improved understanding of marine bacterial ecology and physiology.
Carbon loss and optical property changes during long‐term photochemical and biological degradation of estuarine dissolved organic matter
Terrestrially derived dissolved organic matter (DOM) impacts the optical properties of coastal seawater and affects carbon cycling on a global scale. We studied sequential long-term photochemical and
The Marine Microbial Eukaryote Transcriptome Sequencing Project (MMETSP): Illuminating the Functional Diversity of Eukaryotic Life in the Oceans through Transcriptome Sequencing
This Community Page describes a resource of 700 transcriptomes from marine microbial eukaryotes to help understand their role in the world's oceans.
Functional metagenomic profiling of nine biomes
The magnitude of the microbial metabolic capabilities encoded by the viromes was extensive, suggesting that they serve as a repository for storing and sharing genes among their microbial hosts and influence global evolutionary and metabolic processes.
Role of photoreactions in the formation of biologically labile compounds from dissolved organic matter
Dissolved organic matter (DOM) can be degraded by sunlight into a variety of photoproducts that stimulate the growth and activity of microorganisms in aquatic environments. All biologically labile
Microbulbifer hydrolyticus gen. nov., sp. nov., and Marinobacterium georgiense gen. nov., sp. nov., two marine bacteria from a lignin-rich pulp mill waste enrichment community.
Two new genera and species are proposed: Microbulbifer hydrolyticus, with type strain IRE-31 (= ATCC 700072), and Marinobacterium georgiense, withtype strain KW-40 (= AtCC 700074).
Silicibacter pomeroyi sp. nov. and Roseovarius nubinhibens sp. nov., dimethylsulfoniopropionate-demethylating bacteria from marine environments.
Genotypic and phenotypic analyses support the creation of two novel species: Silicibacter pomeroyi sp.nov.
Genome sequence of Silicibacter pomeroyi reveals adaptations to the marine environment
The genome sequence of Silicibacter pomeroyi, a member of the marine Roseobacter clade, is described, indicating that this organism relies upon a lithoheterotrophic strategy that uses inorganic compounds to supplement heterotrophy.
Genome characteristics of a generalist marine bacterial lineage
Members of the marine Roseobacter lineage have been characterized as ecological generalists, suggesting that there will be challenges in assigning well-delineated ecological roles and biogeochemical
Ecological Genomics of Marine Roseobacters
Comparative genome sequence analysis of three cultured Roseobacter representatives suggests that cellular requirements for nitrogen are largely provided by regenerated ammonium and organic compounds, while typical sources of carbon include amino acids, glyoxylate, and aromatic metabolites.
