Microbial Biodiversity in the Water of Lake Baikal
The inference is made that the microbial community of Lake Baikal contains not only known species but also new bacterial species that are possibly endemic to the lake. Expand
The first case of disease of the sponge Lubomirskia baicalensis: Investigation of its microbiome
The first metagenomic analysis of the microbiome of the first sample of diseased endemic sponge Lubomirskia baicalensis from Lake Baikal found essential changes in the composition and structure of the microbial community were detected in the diseased individual possessing an uncharacteristic pink coloring.

Biodiversity and Activity of the Microbial Community in the Kotelnikovsky Hot Springs (Lake Baikal)
The data obtained suggest high activity of the bacterial community in situ and its particular role in the functioning of the hydrothermal ecosystem. Expand
Methods of neuston sampling for the quantitative characteristic of microbial communities of Lake Baikal
The results of the present work demonstrate that sampling using a metal screen can be recommended for the complex characterization of neuston biofilm and estimation not only microbiological, but also molecular and chemical parameters, because it allows collecting the water volume required for all analyses.

Spatial distribution and species composition of prosthecate bacteria in Lake Baikal
It was demonstrated that the lake water column is inhabited by uncultivable alpha-proteobacteria of uncertain phylogenetic affinity, in addition to representatives of the species Caulobacter vibrioides and C. leidyi, which were detected by traditional microbiological methods. Expand
A Study of the Composition of the Aquatic Bacterial Community of Lake Baikal by the in situ Hybridization Method
The aquatic micro-bial community in the southern basin of Lake Baikal is investigated by the in situ hybridization method with oli-gonucleotide probes for the main bacterial groups and the total bacterial abundance ranges from (1.6–1.4) × 10. Expand
