Introducing EzTaxon-e: a prokaryotic 16S rRNA gene sequence database with phylotypes that represent uncultured species.
It is concluded that the EzTaxon-e database provides a useful taxonomic backbone for the identification of cultured and uncultured prokaryotes and offers a valuable means of communication among microbiologists who routinely encounter taxonomically novel isolates.
EzEditor: a versatile sequence alignment editor for both rRNA- and protein-coding genes.
EzEditor is, to the authors' knowledge, the first sequence editing software designed for both rRNA- and protein-coding genes with the visualization of biologically relevant information and should be useful in molecular phylogenetic studies.
Duplex-specific nuclease efficiently removes rRNA for prokaryotic RNA-seq
The results clearly showed that the DSN treatment was more efficient at removing rRNA than the Hyb method was, while preserving the original relative abundance of mRNA species in bacterial cells, and it is proposed that, for bacterial mRNA-seq experiments, D SN treatment should be preferred to Hyb-based methods.
Complete Genome Sequence of Vibrio vulnificus MO6-24/O
The complete annotated genome sequence of V. vulnificus MO6-24/O, isolated from a patient with septicemia, shows a unique genetic makeup, including phagelike elements, carbohydrate metabolism-related genes, and the superintegron.

This study identified 6 oropharyngeal microbiome types, which were not associated with the type of viruses, but were rather linked to the age of the subjects, and identified a bacterium specific to young patients, M. nonliquefaciens.
A defect in iron uptake enhances the susceptibility of Cryptococcus neoformans to azole antifungal drugs.
Genome Sequence of Escherichia coli J53, a Reference Strain for Genetic Studies
The genome sequence of E. coli J53 is reported, which has been widely used as a general recipient strain for various conjugation experiments and is resistant to sodium azide.
Differential expression and role of two dithiol glutaredoxins Grx1 and Grx2 in Schizosaccharomyces pombe.
Toll‐like receptor 9 mediates oral bacteria‐induced IL‐8 expression in gingival epithelial cells
Oral bacteria induce interleukin (IL)‐8 in gingival epithelial cells through TLR9 and the IL‐8‐inducing ability depends on the invasive capacity and immunostimulating DNA.
