The complete genome sequence of Geobacillus thermodenitrificans NG80-2, a thermophilic bacillus isolated from a deep oil reservoir in Northern China, consists of a 3,550,319-bp chromosome and a 57,693-bp plasmid. The genome reveals that NG80-2 is well equipped for adaptation into a wide variety of environmental niches, including oil reservoirs, by(More)
The desulfurization (dsz) genes from Rhodococcus erythropolis DS-3 were successfully integrated into the chromosomes of Bacillus subtilis ATCC 21332 and UV1 using an integration vector pDGSDN, yielding two recombinant strains, B. subtilis M29 and M28 in which the integrated dsz genes were expressed efficiently under the promoter, Pspac. The dibenzothiophene(More)
Data mining is the process of extracting implicit, valuable, and interesting information from large sets of data. Visualization is the process of visually exploring data for pattern and trend analysis, and it is a common method of browsing spatial datasets to look for patterns. However, the growing volume of spatial datasets make it difficult for humans to(More)
The taxonomic position of an actinomycete, strain HD321(T), isolated from an oil-producing well of Daqing oilfield, was clarified using a polyphasic taxonomic approach. The strain possessed cell-wall chemotype IV, MK-9(H(2)) as the predominant menaquinone, relatively long-chain mycolic acids (52-62 carbon atoms) of the Gordonia type, straight-chain(More)
A field experiment was performed to monitor changes in exogenous bacteria and to investigate the diversity of indigenous bacteria during a field trial of microbial enhanced oil recovery (MEOR). Two wells (26–195 and 27–221) were injected with three exogenous strains and then closed to allow for microbial growth and metabolism. After a waiting period, the(More)
Dibenzothiophene (DBT) monooxygenase (DszC) catalysis, the first and also the key step in the microbial DBT desulfurization, is the conversion of DBT to DBT sulfone (DBTO2). In this study, dszC of a DBT-desulfurizing bacterium Rhodococcus sp. DS-3 was cloned by PCR. The sequence cloned was 99% homologous to Rhodococcus erythropolis IGTS8 that was reported(More)
Emergency control systems influence the design, development, and maintenance of public infrastructure in a significant manner. These systems have helped to restore the infrastructure and in times prevent damages in cases of crisis. Road transportation system is an important part of public infrastructure and is one of the critical assets of a nation.(More)
As of today, the semiconductor industry has been looking for possible alternative materials of silicon, since the physical limitation of silicon-based devices, i.e., planar CMOS devices for most of the scenarios, is approaching soon. Among all the novel materials arising from the horizon, graphene is considered to be a very promising alternative for its(More)
Plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) is widely used for the synthesis of carbon materials, such as diamond-like carbons (DLCs), carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and carbon nanowalls (CNWs). Advantages of PECVD are low synthesis temperature compared with thermal CVD and the ability to grow vertically, free-standing structures. Due to its self-supported(More)
