This study examined the hypothesis that different inorganic carbon (IC) conditions enrich different ammonia-oxidizing bacteria (AOB) and nitrite-oxidizing bacteria (NOB) populations by operating two laboratory-scale continuous-flow bioreactors fed with 15 and 100 mg IC/L, respectively. During this study, both bioreactors maintained satisfactory(More)
BACKGROUND The use of a video-assisted laryngoscope (VL) has been shown to reduce the time to achieve intubation with a double-lumen endobronchial tube (DLT). As the blade of the VL is curved differently to a standard laryngoscope, the DLT must be angled into a hockey stick shape to fit properly. We conducted a study to establish which direction of(More)
Brevibacillus choshinensis HPD52(T) (DSM 8552) is a Gram-positive, spore-forming, and protein-producing bacterium. Here, we report the 6.28-Mb draft genome sequence of B. choshinensis HPD52(T), which will promote its application and provide useful information for genomic taxonomy and phylogenomics of Bacillus-like bacteria.
Bacillus muralis LMG 20238(T) is a Gram-positive, aerobic, and spore-forming bacterium. Here, we report the 5.18-Mb draft genome sequence of B. muralis LMG 20238(T), which is the first genome sequence of this species and will promote its fundamental research.
Bacillus humi LMG 22167(T) is a Gram-positive, aerobic, and spore-forming bacterium Here, we report the 4.80-Mb draft genome sequence of B. humi LMG 22167(T), which is the first genome sequence of this species and will promote its fundamental research.
A Gram-positive, moderately halotolerant, rod-shaped, spore forming bacterium, designated strain FJAT-14515T was isolated from a soil sample in Cihu area, Taoyuan County, Taiwan. The strain grew at 10–35 °C (optimum at 30 °C), pH 5.7–9.0 (optimum at pH 7.0) and at salinities of 0–5 % (w/v) NaCl (optimum at 1 % w/v). The diagnostic diamino acid of the(More)
This study provides a theoretical and empirical analysis to explain factors influencing the elder persons' adoption of mobile healthcare devices. The proposed model was extended from two well-known intention-based theories: the theory of reasoned action and the technology acceptance model. Other individual differences and technological characteristics(More)
