Roseobacter gallaeciensis sp. nov., a new marine bacterium isolated from rearings and collectors of the scallop Pecten maximus.
Four bacterial strains were isolated from larval cultures and collectors of the scallop Pecten maximus. They showed a high level of intragroup genomic relatedness (84-95%) as determined by DNA-DNAExpand

Vibrio pectenicida sp. nov., a pathogen of scallop (Pecten maximus) larvae.
Five strains were isolated from moribund scallop (Pecten maximus) larvae over 5 years (1990-1995) during outbreaks of disease in a hatchery (Argenton, Brittany, France). Their pathogenic activity onExpand

Sequence heterogeneities among 16S ribosomal RNA sequences, and their effect on phylogenetic analyses at the species level.
We have analyzed what phylogenetic signal can be derived by small subunit rRNA comparison for bacteria of different but closely related genera (enterobacteria) and for different species or strainsExpand

Vibrio splendidus-related strain isolated from brown deposit in scallop (Pecten maximus) cultured in Brittany (France).
In 1996, a brood-stock of three year old scallop (Pecten maximus) conditioned at the hatchery of Argenton (Brittany, France) exhibited severe disease signs including brown deposits on the innerExpand
