More than two thirds of emerging viruses are of zoonotic origin, and among them RNA viruses represent the majority. Ceratopogonidae (genus Culicoides) are well-known vectors of several viruses responsible for epizooties (bluetongue, epizootic haemorrhagic disease, etc.). They are also vectors of the only known virus infecting humans: the Oropouche virus.(More)
An emerging interest for the giant virus discovery process, genome sequencing and analysis has allowed an expansion of the number of known Megavirales members. Using the protist Vermamoeba sp. as cell support, a new giant virus named Faustovirus has been isolated. In this study, we describe the genome sequences of nine Faustoviruses and build a genomic(More)
Murdochiella massiliensis strain SIT12 (= CSUR P1987 = DSM 29078) is the type strain of M. massiliensis sp. nov. This bacterium was isolated from the stool of a healthy 2-year-old Senegalese boy. M. massiliensis is an anaerobic, Gram-positive coccus. The genome size of M. massiliensis strain SIT12 is 1 642 295 bp with 48.9% G+C content and assembled into(More)
Prevotella phocaeensis sp. nov. strain SN19T (= DSM 103364) is a new species isolated from the gut microbiota of patient with colitis due to Clostridium difficile. Strain SN19T is Gram-negative rod-shaped bacteria, strictly anaerobic, nonmotile and non-endospore forming. The predominance fatty acid is hexadecanoic acid. Its 16S rRNA showed a 97.70% sequence(More)
Massilibacterium senegalense gen. nov., sp. nov., strain mt8(T), is the type strain of Massilibacterium gen. nov., a new genus within the Bacillaceae family. This Gram-negative facultative anaerobic rod was isolated from the gut microbiota of a severely malnourished boy. Its phenotypic description is hereby presented with a complete annotation of its genome(More)
BACKGROUND Microbial culturomics represents an ongoing revolution in the characterization of environmental and human microbiome. METHODS By using three media containing high salt concentration (100, 150, and 200 g/L), the halophilic microbial culturome of a commercial table salt was determined. RESULTS Eighteen species belonging to the Terrabacteria(More)
Actinobaculum massiliense strain FC3 was isolated from the urine of a patient with acute cystitis. The 2.06-Mb genome of strain FC3 contains 17 toxin/antitoxin modules and 9 bacteriocin-encoding genes that may play a role in virulence. The genome also exhibits 693 genes acquired by lateral gene transfer.
Actinomyces polynesiensis strain MS2 gen. nov., sp. nov. is a newly proposed genus within the family Actinomycetaceae, isolated from the stools of a healthy individual in Raiatea Island (French Polynesia, South Pacific). Actinomyces massiliensis is an anaerobic, Gram-positive organism. Here we describe the features of this organism, together with the(More)
Strain FF12(T) was isolated from the mouth of a West African lungfish (Protopterus annectens) in Senegal. MALDI-TOF-MS did not provide any identification. This strain exhibited a 97.97% 16S rRNA sequence identity with Kaistella flava. Using a polyphasic study including phenotypic and genomic analyses, strain FF12(T) is Gram-negative, aero-anaerobic,(More)
