A Micromonospora strain, isolate MT25T, was recovered from a sediment collected from the Challenger Deep of the Mariana Trench using a selective isolation procedure. The isolate produced two major metabolites, n-acetylglutaminyl glutamine amide and desferrioxamine B, the chemical structures of which were determined using 1D and 2D-NMR, including 1H-15N HSQC and 1H-15N HMBC 2D-NMR, as well as high resolution MS. A whole genome sequence of the strain showed the presence of ten natural product…

Halomonas profundi sp. nov., isolated from deep-sea sediment of the Mariana Trench.
Two novel Gram-stain-negative, facultative anaerobic, non-flagellated, rod-shaped bacterial strains, designated MT13T and MT32, were isolated from sediment samples collected from the Mariana Trench and represented a novel species of the genus Halomonas, for which the nameHalomonas profundi sp.


Micromonospora acroterricola sp. nov., a novel actinobacterium isolated from a high altitude Atacama Desert soil.
A Micromonospora strain isolated from a high altitude Atacama Desert soil was examined by using a polyphasic approach and was found to have morphological, chemotaxonomic and cultural characteristics typical of members of the genus Microm onospora.
Whole Genome Sequence of Dermacoccus abyssi MT1.1 Isolated from the Challenger Deep of the Mariana Trench Reveals Phenazine Biosynthesis Locus and Environmental Adaptation Factors
Bioinformatic analyses of key stress-related genes provide an insight into how the organism adapted to the environmental conditions that prevail in the deep-sea, and a pathway leading to the biosynthesis of dermacozines is proposed.
Genome-based classification of micromonosporae with a focus on their biotechnological and ecological potential
Draft genomes of 40 Micromonospora type strains and two non-type strains are made available through the Genomic Encyclopedia of Bacteria and Archaea project and used to generate a phylogenomic tree which showed they could be assigned to well supported phyletic lines that were not evident in corresponding trees based on single and concatenated sequences of conserved genes.
Defining the Species Micromonospora saelicesensis and Micromonospora noduli Under the Framework of Genomics
Overall results provided a working framework for defining Micromonospora species at the genomic and phenotypic level and supported the current classification of M. saelicesensis and M. noduli as separate species.
Micromonospora sediminicola sp. nov., isolated from marine sediment.
A combination of DNA-DNA hybridization results and phenotypic properties indicated that strain SH2-13(T) should be classified as the type strain of a novel species, with the proposed name Micromonospora sediminicola sp.

A novel actinomycete, strain TVU1(T), was isolated from leaves of the indigenous South African plant Tulbaghia violacea and identified as a member of the genus Micromonospora, which represents a novel species for which the name Microm onospora tulbaghiae sp.
Micromonospora marina sp. nov., isolated from sea sand.
Two actinomycete strains, JSM1-1(T) and JSM1-3, were isolated from sea sand collected in Thailand. Their taxonomic position was determined using a polyphasic approach. The chemotaxonomic
Verrucosispora fiedleri sp. nov., an actinomycete isolated from a fjord sediment which synthesizes proximicins
Isolate MG-37T (=NCIMB 14794T = NRRL-B-24892T) should be classified as the type strain of a novel species of Verrucosispora for which the name VerruCosispora fiedleri is proposed.
Uncovering the potential of novel micromonosporae isolated from an extreme hyper-arid Atacama Desert soil
Draft genomes generated for the isolates revealed a rich source of novel biosynthetic gene clusters, some of which were unique to individual strains thereby opening up the prospect of selecting especially gifted micromonosporae for natural product discovery.
