Virgibacillus : a new genus to accommodate Bacillus pantothenticus (Proom and Knight 1950). Emended description of Virgibacillus pantothenticus
The species Virgibacillus pantothenticus and related organisms comprising this new genus can be distinguished fromMembers of Bacillus rRNA group 1 (Bacillus sensu stricto), and from members of Paenibacillin and other aerobic endospore-forming bacteria by routine phenotypic tests.
Initial community evenness favours functionality under selective stress
It is found that the stability of the net ecosystem denitrification in the face of salinity stress was strongly influenced by the initial evenness of the community, therefore, when communities are highly uneven, or there is extreme dominance by one or a few species, their functioning is less resistant to environmental stress.
Evaluation of a microplate DNA : DNA hybridization method compared with the initial renaturation method
It is concluded that the microplate method can be used as a reliable taxonomic tool and in very good correlation with the initial renaturation method.
Introduction to the Proteobacteria
The minimum information about a genome sequence (MIGS) specification
Here, the minimum information about a genome sequence (MIGS) specification is introduced with the intent of promoting participation in its development and discussing the resources that will be required to develop improved mechanisms of metadata capture and exchange.
Encapsulation for preservation of functionality and targeted delivery of bioactive food components
Real-time PCR assay for the simultaneous quantification of nitrifying and denitrifying bacteria in activated sludge
A real-time PCR assay that allows the simultaneous quantification of phylogenetic and functional genes involved in nitrification and denitrification processes is demonstrated that the method is a fast and accurate tool for the analysis of the (de)nitrifying community structure and size in both natural and engineered environmental samples.
TaxonGap: a visualization tool for intra- and inter-species variation among individual biomarkers
TaxonGap is a novel and easy-to-handle software tool that allows visual comparison of the discriminative power of multiple biomarkers for a set of OTUs and the compact graphical output allows for easy comparison and selection of individual biomarkers.
