Multicellular, filamentous, sulfur-oxidizing bacteria, known as cable bacteria, were discovered attached to fibers of a carbon brush electrode serving as an anode of a benthic microbial fuel cell (BMFC). The BMFC had been operated in a temperate estuarine environment for over a year before collecting anode samples for scanning electron microscopy and… (More)
Urease-producing microbes are of significance due to their potential application in biocement production. Sporosarcina koreensis Q1 is a urease-producing bacterium belonging to the phylum Firmicutes. Here, we present the draft whole-genome sequence of S. koreensis Q1, isolated from a barchan sand dune in Qatar.
This study represents the first characterization of sand microbiota in migrating barchan sand dunes. Bacterial communities were studied through direct counts and cultivation, as well as 16S rRNA gene and metagenomic sequence analysis to gain an understanding of microbial abundance, diversity, and potential metabolic capabilities. Direct on-grain cell counts… (More)
