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)
Strain FF11(T) was isolated from the wound on a researcher's finger who had been bitten by a fish (Protopterus annectens) in Senegal. Analysis by matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry did not provide any identification, but the 16S rRNA sequence exhibited 97.9% identity with Dermabacter hominis. Phenotypic and genomic(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)
In French Guiana, the unique Coxiella burnetii circulating genotype 17 causes 24% of community-acquired pneumonia, the highest prevalence ever described. To explain this unusual virulence, we performed a comparative genomic analysis of strain Cb175, which was isolated from a patient from French Guiana. Cb175 has a greater number of mutations in genes(More)
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)
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)
Strain MS1, a Gram-positive, obligately anaerobic, motile and spore-forming rod belonging to the Clostridium genus, was isolated from the feces of a healthy Polynesian male living in French Polynesia. The temperature range for growth was 30-45 °C. We sequenced its complete genome and studied its phenotypic characteristics. The 3,560,738-bp long genome (one(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.
Strain FF8(T) (= CSUR P860 = DSM 28259) was isolated in Dakar, Senegal, from the urine of a 65-year-old man with acute cystitis. This strain shows a similarity of sequence of 16S rRNA of 98.38% with Weeksella virosa, and its GenBank accession numbers are HG931340 and CCMH00000000. Matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry(More)
