In order to enrich the phylogenetic diversity represented in the available sequenced bacterial genomes and as part of an “Assembling the Tree of Life” project, we determined the genome sequence of Thermomicrobium roseum DSM 5159. T. roseum DSM 5159 is a red-pigmented, rod-shaped, Gram-negative extreme thermophile isolated from a hot spring that possesses both an atypical cell wall composition and an unusual cell membrane that is composed entirely of long-chain 1,2-diols. Its genome is composed… 

Complete genome sequence of ‘Thermobaculum terrenum’ type strain (YNP1 T )

Strain YNP1 T is the only cultivated member of an acid tolerant, extremely thermophilic species belonging to a phylogenetically isolated environmental clone group within the phylum Chloroflexi.

Complete genome sequence of ‘Thermobaculum terrenum’ type strain (YNP1T)

The bacterium was isolated from a slightly acidic extreme thermal soil in Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming (USA) and is likely to be the third completed genome sequence of a member of the class Thermomicrobia and the seventh type strain genome from the phylum Chloroflexi.

Complete genome sequence of Sphaerobacter thermophilus type strain (S 6022T)

The features of this organism are described, together with the complete genome and annotation, which is the first complete genome sequence of the thermomicrobial subclass Sphaerobacteridae, and the second sequence from the chloroflexal class Thermomicrobia.

Complete Genome of Ignavibacterium album, a Metabolically Versatile, Flagellated, Facultative Anaerobe from the Phylum Chlorobi

Comparisons of I. album and other members of the phylum Chlorobi suggest that the physiology of the ancestors of this phylum might have been quite different from that of modern GSB.

Complete genome sequence of the filamentous anoxygenic phototrophic bacterium Chloroflexus aurantiacus

The genomic analyses presented in this report, along with previous physiological, ecological and biochemical studies, indicate that the anoxygenic phototroph Cfl.

Chthonomonas calidirosea gen. nov., sp. nov., an aerobic, pigmented, thermophilic micro-organism of a novel bacterial class, Chthonomonadetes classis nov., of the newly described phylum Armatimonadetes originally designated candidate division OP10.

It is proposed that strain T49(T), isolated from geothermally heated soil at Hell's Gate, Tikitere, New Zealand, represents a novel bacterial genus and species within the new class Chthonomonadetes classis nov.

Comparative and Functional Genomics of Anoxygenic Green Bacteria from the Taxa Chlorobi , Chloroflexi , and Acidobacteria

Based upon phylogenetic inferences derived from analyses of sequences for reaction centers and enzymes of (bacterio)chlorophyll biosynthesis, some implications concerning the evolutionary origins of photosynthesis are discussed.

Metatranscriptomic analyses of chlorophototrophs of a hot-spring microbial mat

This study showed that, when community-relevant genomes and metagenomes are available, SOLiD sequencing technology can be used for metatranscriptomic analyses, and the results suggested that this method can potentially reveal new insights into the ecophysiology of this model microbial community.

Genomic analysis of Chthonomonas calidirosea, the first sequenced isolate of the phylum Armatimonadetes

Examination of the genome with physiological data and environmental dynamics reveals ecological factors behind the apparent elusiveness of T49T to cultivation and, by extension, the remaining ‘uncultured majority’ that have so far evaded conventional microbiological techniques.

Cultivation and Genomic, Nutritional, and Lipid Biomarker Characterization of Roseiflexus Strains Closely Related to Predominant In Situ Populations Inhabiting Yellowstone Hot Spring Microbial Mats

These strains are closely related to predominant filamentous anoxygenic phototrophs found in the mat of an alkaline siliceous hot spring in Yellowstone National Park, as judged by the similarity of small-subunit rRNA, lipid distributions, and genomic and metagenomic sequences.



The genome of Salinibacter ruber: convergence and gene exchange among hyperhalophilic bacteria and archaea.

The phenotype of S. ruber is remarkably similar to that of the hyperhalophilic Archaea (Haloarchaea), and the genome sequence suggests that this resemblance has arisen through convergence at the physiological level and the molecular level.

The complete genome sequence of the hyperthermophilic, sulphate-reducing archaeon Archaeoglobus fulgidus

The A. fulgidus genome encodes functionally uncharacterized yet conserved proteins, two-thirds of which are shared with M. jannaschii (428 ORFs), indicating substantial archaeal gene diversity.

Thermomicrobium, a New Genus of Extremely Thermophilic Bacteria

It was shown that the new organism grew well only on sucrose or glycerol when glutamate served as an additional nutritional source, and was regarded as belonging to a new genus, for which the name Thermomicrobium is proposed.

Life in Hot Carbon Monoxide: The Complete Genome Sequence of Carboxydothermus hydrogenoformans Z-2901

Analysis of the genome of the thermophilic bacterium Carboxydothermus hydrogenoformans reveals the presence of at least five highly differentiated anaerobic carbon monoxide dehydrogenase complexes, which may in part explain how this species is able to grow so much more rapidly on CO than many other species.

Phylogenomic analysis reveals likely duplications of genes involved in biosynthetic pathways for photosynthesis and the metabolism of sulfur and nitrogen as well as strong similarities between metabolic processes in C. tepidum and many Archaeal species.

The complete genome sequence of the Gram-positive bacterium Bacillus subtilis

Bacillus subtilis is the best-characterized member of the Gram-positive bacteria, indicating that bacteriophage infection has played an important evolutionary role in horizontal gene transfer, in particular in the propagation of bacterial pathogenesis.

Population level functional diversity in a microbial community revealed by comparative genomic and metagenomic analyses

Genomic information from these mat-specific isolates and metagenomic information can be coupled to detect naturally occurring populations that are associated with different functionalities, not always represented by isolates, but which may nevertheless be important for niche partitioning and the establishment of microbial community structure.

Metabolic Complementarity and Genomics of the Dual Bacterial Symbiosis of Sharpshooters

This study, which to the authors' knowledge is the first genomic analysis of an obligate symbiosis involving multiple partners, suggests striking complementarity in the biosynthetic capabilities of the two symbionts: B. cicadellinicola and S. muelleri, both isolated from H. coagulata.

Stepwise formation of the bacterial flagellar system

These results show that core components of the bacterial flagellum originated through the successive duplication and modification of a few, or perhaps even a single, precursor gene.

Reclassification of Sphaerobacter thermophilus from the subclass Sphaerobacteridae in the phylum Actinobacteria to the class Thermomicrobia (emended description) in the phylum Chloroflexi (emended description).

Additional 16S rRNA gene sequences indicate that Sphaerobacter thermophilus is most closely related to Thermomicrobium roseum, which it also resembles phenotypically, and both species are reproducibly affiliated with the phylum Chloroflexi (green non-sulfur bacteria), despite T. roseum currently being classified in its own phylum, theThermomicrobia.
