Sphaerobacter thermophilus Demharter et al. 1989 is the sole and type species of the genus Sphaerobacter, which is the type genus of the family Sphaerobacteraceae, the order Sphaerobacterales and the subclass Sphaerobacteridae. Phylogenetically, it belongs to the genomically little studied class of the Thermomicrobia in the bacterial phylum Chloroflexi. Here, the genome of strain S 6022T is described which is an obligate aerobe that was originally isolated from an aerated laboratory-scale…

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.
Non-contiguous finished genome sequence and contextual data of the filamentous soil bacterium Ktedonobacter racemifer type strain (SOSP1-21T)
The Ktedonobacter racemifer corrig genome is the largest prokaryotic genome reported so far and comprises a large number of over-represented COGs, particularly genes associated with transposons, causing the genetic redundancy within the genome being considerably larger than expected by chance.
1,003 reference genomes of bacterial and archaeal isolates expand coverage of the tree of life
We present 1,003 reference genomes that were sequenced as part of the Genomic Encyclopedia of Bacteria and Archaea (GEBA) initiative, selected to maximize sequence coverage of phylogenetic space.
Thermorudis pharmacophila sp. nov., a novel member of the class Thermomicrobia isolated from geothermal soil, and emended descriptions of Thermomicrobium roseum, Thermomicrobium carboxidum, Thermorudis peleae and Sphaerobacter thermophilus.
An aerobic, thermophilic and cellulolytic bacterium, designated strain WKT50.2T, was isolated from geothermal soil at Waikite, New Zealand and represents a novel species, for which the name Thermorudis pharmacophila sp.
Ecological and genomic analyses of candidate phylum WPS-2 bacteria in an unvegetated soil.
Members of the bacterial candidate phylum WPS-2 (or Eremiobacterota) are abundant in several dry, bare soil environments. In a bare soil deposited by an extinct iron-sulfur spring, we found that
Proteogenomic Analysis of a Thermophilic Bacterial Consortium Adapted to Deconstruct Switchgrass
Analysis of compost-derived bacterial consortium adapted to switchgrass at elevated temperature with high levels of glycoside hydrolase activities confirms the importance of Paenibacillus and Gemmatimonadetes to biomass deconstruction, and indicates that there are unexplored proteins with important roles in bacterial lignocellulose deconstruction.
Microbial community structure and dynamics in thermophilic composting viewed through metagenomics and metatranscriptomics
Time-series data showed that the turning procedure has a strong impact on the compost microbiota, restoring to a certain extent the population profile seen at the beginning of the process; and that lignocellulosic biomass deconstruction occurs synergistically and sequentially, with hemicellulose being degraded preferentially to cellulose and lignin.
Analysis of the SOS response of Vibrio and other bacteria with multiple chromosomes
The findings confirm that the SOS response of the Vibrionaceae is strongly linked with pathogenicity and dissemination of antibiotic resistance, and suggest that the characterization of the newly identified members of this regulon could provide key insights into the pathogenesis of Vibrio.
Community genomic analyses constrain the distribution of metabolic traits across the Chloroflexi phylum and indicate roles in sediment carbon cycling
The potential roles of Chloroflexi in sediment carbon cycling beyond organohalide respiration are expanded to include respiration of sugars, fermentation, CO2 fixation, and acetogenesis with ATP formation by substrate-level phosphorylation.
Extremophilic nitrite-oxidizing Chloroflexi from Yellowstone hot springs
The detection of novel thermophilic NOB exemplifies the still incomplete knowledge of nitrification, and indicates that nitrite oxidation might be an ancient and wide-spread form of energy conservation.


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.
Complete Genome Sequence of the Aerobic CO-Oxidizing Thermophile Thermomicrobium roseum
It is proposed that glycosylation of its carotenoids plays a crucial role in the adaptation of the cell membrane to this bacterium's thermophilic lifestyle and suggests a straightforward means for lateral transfer of flagellum-based motility.
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.
A phylogeny-driven genomic encyclopaedia of Bacteria and Archaea
The results strongly support the need for systematic ‘phylogenomic’ efforts to compile a phylogeny-driven ‘Genomic Encyclopedia of Bacteria and Archaea’ in order to derive maximum knowledge from existing microbial genome data as well as from genome sequences to come.
Proposal for a New Hierarchic Classification System, Actinobacteria classis nov.
A classification system in which phylogenetically neighboring taxa at the genus level are clustered into families, suborders, orders, subclasses, and a class irrespective of those phenotypec characteristics on which the delineation of taxa has been based in the past is presented.
Towards a natural system of organisms: proposal for the domains Archaea, Bacteria, and Eucarya.
It is proposed that a formal system of organisms be established in which above the level of kingdom there exists a new taxon called a "domain." Life on this planet would be seen as comprising three domains, the Bacteria, the Archaea, and the Eucarya, each containing two or more kingdoms.
Phylum BVII. Thermomicrobia phy. nov.
The phylum Thermomicrobia consists of a single known representative that branches deeply in the major reference trees and is distantly related to the Chloroflexi. Gram negative, short, irregularly
