Isolation and Biodiversity of Hitherto Undescribed Soil Bacteria Related to Bacillus niacini
TLDR
The hitherto neglected B. niacini lineage, apparently among the most abundant soil Bacillus, was accessible to the cultivation approach and revealed a high genomic variety, redundancy could not be observed among the authors' isolates.
Development and Application of a Selective PCR-Denaturing Gradient Gel Electrophoresis Approach To Detect a Recently Cultivated Bacillus Group Predominant in Soil
ABSTRACT The worldwide presence of a hitherto-nondescribed group of predominant soil microorganisms related to Bacillus benzoevorans was analyzed after development of two sets of selective primers
The Diversity and Geographic Distribution of Cultivable Bacillus-Like Bacteria Across Black Soils of Northeast China
TLDR
It is demonstrated that a distinct biogeographic distribution pattern of cultivable Bacillus-like bacterial communities existed in the black soil zone, which emphasizes that the strategy of local isolation and application of beneficial Bacillales-like strains is rather important in black soil agriculture development.
Identification of new cry genes in Bacillus thuringiensis isolates by multiplex PCR and RFLP.
TLDR
A valid method for identifying new cry genes from bacterial collections is described and the results verified that 14 of the 41 studied isolates showed the same amplified DNA fragments for the cry1 and cry1Ac genes as those exhibited by the standard strains.
Predominance of Bacillus sp. in soil samples of the southern regions of Western Ghats, India
TLDR
In the study of the bacterial diversity of this Western Ghats region, it is found that the genus Bacillus was predominant among the samples assessed by both cultivation-dependent and cultivation-independent methods.
Bacillus arenosi sp. nov., Bacillus arvi sp. nov. and Bacillus humi sp. nov., isolated from soil.
TLDR
The three groups of isolates isolated from soil of the Drentse A agricultural research area in The Netherlands represent novel species, for which the names Bacillus humi, Bacillus arenosi and Bacillus arvi are proposed, with LMG 22167T (=DSM 16318T) and L MG 22165T (= DSM 16317T) as the respective type strains.
Isolation and characterization of Gram negative obligate and facultative alkalophilic Bacillus sp. from desert soil of Saudi Arabia
Five new alkalophilic strains were isolated from soil samples collected from the western region of Saudi Arabia. They were identified by partial sequencing of 16s rRNA polymerase chain reaction (PCR)
Predominant Culturable Bacillus Species in Japanese Arable Soils and Their Potential as Biocontrol Agents
TLDR
Only one strain, N2S6, belonging to Bacillus megaterium, showed consistent antagonistic activity against the bacterial wilt of tomato caused by Ralstonia solanacearum, indicating that Bacillus species were more predominant in soil than in root.

Searching for predominant soil bacteria: 16S rDNA cloning versus strain cultivation.
TLDR
Comparing the cultivation approach and the molecular 16S rDNA analysis from the same soil sample, there was no correlation between the collection of cultured strains and the 16s rDNA clone library.
Detection and in situ identification of representatives of a widely distributed new bacterial phylum.
TLDR
A careful data analysis revealed the importance and problems of identifying and dealing with artefacts such as chimeric structure when defining new phylogenetic groups based mainly upon cloned amplified rDNAs.
The microbial diversity in picoplankton enrichment cultures: a molecular screening of marine isolates.
TLDR
The data show the enormous diversity of cultivated bacteria from picoplankton enrichment cultures of one North Sea water sample, which is only a small fraction of the total picoplANKton community.
Phylogeny of the Main Bacterial 16S rRNA Sequences in Drentse A Grassland Soils (The Netherlands)
TLDR
The main bacteria in peaty, acid grassland soils in the Netherlands were investigated by ribosome isolation, temperature gradient gel electrophoresis, hybridization, cloning, and sequencing and it was found that about 65% of all the bacterial ribosomes originated from Firmicutes.
Phylogenetic identification and in situ detection of individual microbial cells without cultivation.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of the retrieved rRNA sequence of an uncultured microorganism reveals its closest culturable relatives and may, together with information on the physicochemical conditions of its natural habitat, facilitate more directed cultivation attempts.
Improved Culturability of Soil Bacteria and Isolation in Pure Culture of Novel Members of the Divisions Acidobacteria, Actinobacteria, Proteobacteria, and Verrucomicrobia
TLDR
Findings suggest that the maximum achievable CFU count may be as low as 64.3% of the total cell count, which is significantly lower than previously thought.
Quantification of 16S rRNAs in complex bacterial communities by multiple competitive reverse transcription-PCR in temperature gradient gel electrophoresis fingerprints.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that this approach can be applied to TGGE fingerprints of soil bacteria to estimate the ratios of the bacterial 16S rRNAs.
Detection and identification of multiple mycobacterial pathogens by DNA amplification in a single tube.
A comparison of the DNA sequence of the 16S rRNA revealed a region in which there was a minor variation between the species of mycobacteria. This information was used to develop a multiplex
