The phylogeny of the genus Clostridium: proposal of five new genera and eleven new species combinations.
TLDR
The 16S rRNA gene sequences were determined by PCR direct sequencing and were compared with more than 80 previously determined clostridial sequences and the previously published sequences of representative species of other low- G + C-content gram-positive genera, thereby providing an almost complete picture of the genealogical interrelationships of theClostridia.

Roseovarius tolerans gen. nov., sp. nov., a budding bacterium with variable bacteriochlorophyll a production from hypersaline Ekho Lake.
TLDR
Morphological, physiological and genotypic differences to these previously described and distinct genera support the description of a new genus and a new species, Roseovarius tolerans gen. nov, based on isolates from Ekho Lake. Expand
Subsistence strategies in traditional societies distinguish gut microbiomes
TLDR
In addition to taxonomic and metabolic differences between urban and traditional lifestyles, hunter-gatherers form a distinct sub-group among traditional peoples and Treponema are discovered, which are symbionts lost in urban-industrialized societies. Expand
Desulfitobacterium sp. strain PCE1, an anaerobic bacterium that can grow by reductive dechlorination of tetrachloroethene or ortho-chlorinated phenols
TLDR
On the basis of 16S rRNA sequence analysis, the organism was identified as a species within the genus Desulfitobacterium, which until now only contained the chlorophenol-dechlorinating bacterium, Desulf itobacteria dehalogenans. Expand
Staleya guttiformis gen. nov., sp. nov. and Sulfitobacter brevis sp. nov., alpha-3-Proteobacteria from hypersaline, heliothermal and meromictic antarctic Ekho Lake.
TLDR
Morphological, physiological and genotypic differences from related, thus far known genera support the description of Staleya guttiformis gen. nov. with the type strain EL-162T (= DSM 11443T). Expand
Gastrointestinal microflora studies in late-onset autism.
TLDR
Significant alterations in the upper and lower intestinal flora of children with late-onset autism are demonstrated and may provide insights into the nature of this disorder. Expand
Reclassification of Clostridium coccoides, Ruminococcus hansenii, Ruminococcus hydrogenotrophicus, Ruminococcus luti, Ruminococcus productus and Ruminococcus schinkii as Blautia coccoides gen. nov.,
TLDR
Phenotypic and phylogenetic studies were performed on 15 isolates of an unidentified Gram-positive, anaerobic, non-sporulating coccobacillus-shaped bacterium isolated from human faeces, and it is suggested that a novel genus, Blautia gen. nov., is proposed. Expand
Filobacillus milensis gen. nov., sp. nov., a new halophilic spore-forming bacterium with Orn-D-Glu-type peptidoglycan.
TLDR
It is proposed that the unknown bacterium isolated from surface sediment located on the beach of Palaeochori Bay near to a shallow water hydrothermal vent area, Milos, Greece be classified as Filobacillus milensis gen. nov., sp.nov. Expand
The genus Abiotrophia (Kawamura et al.) is not monophyletic: proposal of Granulicatella gen. nov., Granulicatella adiacens comb. nov., Granulicatella elegans comb. nov. and Granulicatella
TLDR
It is formally proposed that the genus Abiotrophia should be restricted to A. defectiva and that A. balaenopterae and A. elegans should be reclassified in a new genus, Granulicatella, as Granulicateslla adiacens comb. Expand
Antarctobacter heliothermus gen. nov., sp. nov., a budding bacterium from hypersaline and heliothermal Ekho Lake.
TLDR
Morphological, physiological and genotypic differences to these and distinct characteristics supported the description of a new genus and a new species, Antarctobacter heliothermus gen. nov, which is phylogenetically related to the genera Sagittula and Roseobacter. Expand
