The genus Burkholderia contains large number of diverse species which include many clinically important organisms, phytopathogens, as well as environmental species. However, currently, there is a paucity of biochemical or molecular characteristics which can reliably distinguish different groups of Burkholderia species. We report here the results of detailed(More)
The species of the class Coriobacteriia are currently distinguished from other bacteria primarily on the basis of their branching in the 16S rRNA gene trees. No reliable molecular marker is known that distinguishes the bacteria of this class from other organisms. We report here the results of detailed phylogenetic and comparative analyses on 22 sequenced(More)
The genus Borrelia contains two groups of organisms: the causative agents of Lyme disease and their relatives and the causative agents of relapsing fever and their relatives. These two groups are morphologically indistinguishable and are difficult to distinguish biochemically. In this work, we have carried out detailed comparative genomic analyses on(More)
The Spirochaetes species cause many important diseases including syphilis and Lyme disease. Except for their containing a distinctive endoflagella, no other molecular or biochemical characteristics are presently known that are specific for either all Spirochaetes or its different families. We report detailed comparative and phylogenomic analyses of protein(More)
The evolutionary interrelationships between the archaeal organisms which comprise the class Halobacteria have proven difficult to elucidate using traditional phylogenetic tools. The class currently contains three orders. However, little is known about the family level relationships within these orders. In this work, we have completed a comprehensive(More)
Understanding of the phylogeny and interrelationships of the genera within the order 'Enterobacteriales' has proven difficult using the 16S rRNA gene and other single-gene or limited multi-gene approaches. In this work, we have completed comprehensive comparative genomic analyses of the members of the order 'Enterobacteriales' which includes phylogenetic(More)
The species from the order Neisseriales are currently distinguished from other bacteria on the basis of branching in 16S rRNA gene trees. For this order containing a single family, Neisseriaceae, no distinctive molecular, biochemical, or phenotypic characters are presently known. We report here detailed phylogenetic and comparative analyses on the 27 genome(More)
The current taxonomy of the order Xanthomonadales is highly problematic and no comprehensive phylogenomic studies have been completed that include the most divergent members within the order. In this work, we have completed a phylogenomic analysis of a wide range of genomes, five of which were sequenced for the first time for this work, representing the(More)
On page 583 and in Fig. 7 of this paper the genus Halogranum, in addition to its correct assignment to the family Haloferacaceae, has also been erroneously assigned to the family Halorubraceae. Additionally, on page 582 and in Fig. 7 of this paper, the genus Natronomonaswas erroneously placed within the family Halobacteriaceae instead of its correct(More)
The order Bifidobacteriales comprises a diverse variety of species found in the gastrointestinal tract of humans and other animals, some of which are opportunistic pathogens, whereas a number of others exhibit health-promoting effects. However, currently very few biochemical or molecular characteristics are known which are specific for the order(More)
