Bacillus indicus sp. nov., an arsenic-resistant bacterium isolated from an aquifer in West Bengal, India.
TLDR
Data suggest that Sd/3T represents a novel species of the genus Bacillus, and the name Bacillus indicus sp.
Bacterial diversity of soil in the vicinity of Pindari glacier, Himalayan mountain ranges, India, using culturable bacteria and soil 16S rRNA gene clones
TLDR
Principal component analysis (PCA) revealed that P1S and P8S were different from P4S soil sample, and indicated that arsenic content, pH, Cr and altitude influence the observed differences in the percentage of specific OTUs in the three 16S rRNA gene clone libraries.
Predominance of Roseobacter, Sulfitobacter, Glaciecola and Psychrobacter in seawater collected off Ushuaia, Argentina, Sub-Antarctica.
TLDR
Bacterial diversity in sub-Antarctic seawater, collected off Ushuaia, Argentina, was examined using a culture independent approach and one of the clones F2C63 showed 100% similarity with Marinomonas ushuaiensis a bacterium identified by us from the same site.
Hexachlorocyclohexane-degrading bacterial strains Sphingomonas paucimobilis B90A, UT26 and Sp+, having similar lin genes, represent three distinct species, Sphingobium indicum sp. nov., Sphingobium

TLDR
A phylogenetic study based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that [Sphingomonas] chungbukensis IMSNU 11152(T) formed a cluster with members of the genus Sphingobium, and it is proposed that strains B90A, UT26 and Sp+ are the type strains of SphingOBium indicum sp.
Reclassification of Amycolatopsis mediterranei DSM 46095 as Amycolatopsis rifamycinica sp. nov.
TLDR
Results from DNA-DNA hybridization experiments and comparison of DNA profiling patterns using pulsed-field gel electrophoresis supported the assignment of strain DSM 46095 to a novel species and showed that the differences between different isolates of A. mediterranei were as large as those between Amycolatopsis species.
Marinomonas ushuaiensis sp. nov., isolated from coastal sea water in Ushuaia, Argentina, sub-Antarctica.
TLDR
On the basis of phenotypic features, chemotaxonomic characteristics and phylogenetic analysis of the 16S rRNA gene sequence, it appears that strain U1T is distinct from the four Marinomonas species with validly published names.
Comparison of bacterial diversity in proglacial soil from Kafni Glacier, Himalayan Mountain ranges, India, with the bacterial diversity of other glaciers in the world
TLDR
Principal component analysis (PCA) revealed that KF and KS were different and arsenic content influenced the differences in the percentage of OTUs, and bacterial diversity of Kf and KS was similar to soils from the Pindari Glacier, Himalayas; Samoylov Island, Siberia; Schrimacher Oasis, Antarctica and Siberian tundra.
Culturable and Culture-Independent Bacterial Diversity and the Prevalence of Cold-Adapted Enzymes from the Himalayan Mountain Ranges of India and Nepal
TLDR
Bacterial diversity of soil samples collected from different geographical regions of Himalayan mountains was studied through culturable and culture-independent approaches and various genera like Exiguobacterium, Erwinia, Mycetecola, Cedecea, Pantoea, and Trichococcus have also shown novel hydrolytic enzyme activity in the Himalayan foothills.
