A facultatively psychrophilic bacterium, strain MD17(T), which hydrolyses lipids at 5 degrees C, was isolated from the Monbetsu coast of the Okhotsk Sea in Hokkaido, Japan, when ice carried by the cold current came to the area. The isolate is an aerobic, non-motile coccobacillus that reduces nitrate to nitrite and hydrolyses Tweens 20, 40, 60 and 80, but(More)
Obligate alkaliphilic strains, AM31D(T) and AM11D, that utilize benzoate and m-hydroxybenzoate were isolated from soil obtained from Tsukuba, Ibaraki, Japan. The isolates grew at pH 8-10, but not at neutral pH. They were Gram-positive, facultatively anaerobic, straight rods with peritrichous flagella and produced ellipsoidal spores. The isolates reduced(More)
Short read mapping is a process to align the short reads, which are fixed-length fragments of the target genome, to a given reference genome to identify the mutations in the target genome. Because of the rapid development of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technologies, faster short read mapping is required. In this paper, we propose a variable length hash(More)
