AbstractStrains representative of species of the marine genera Beneckea and Photobacterium were used as reference standards in in vitro DNA/DNA competition experiments. Within a given species, strains were found to be related by over 80% competition. (Competition was defined as the amount of radioactive DNA displaced by heterologous DNA relative to the amount displaced by homologous DNA.) On the basis of interspecies competition values (expressed as averages), the following groupings could be… 

Identification and phylogenetic study of bioluminescent bacteria from squid (Loligo duvaucelii) based on 16S rRNA gene

TLDR
The results show that bioluminescent bacteria emitting green light is a complex species with Photobacterium leiognathi or Photobacterial mandapamensis, a free-living organism or symbionts which diversely spread in the terrestrial environment, freshwater and marine ecosystem.

Phylogenetic resolution and habitat specificity of members of the Photobacterium phosphoreum species group.

TLDR
The results of this fine-scale phylogenetic analysis support the emerging view that bacterial species names should designate singular historical entities, i.e. discrete lineages diagnosed by a significant divergence of shared derived nucleotide characters.

Genomic and Phylogenetic Characterization of Luminous Bacteria Symbiotic with the Deep-Sea Fish Chlorophthalmus albatrossis (Aulopiformes: Chlorophthalmidae)

TLDR
Luminous bacteria symbiotic with C. albatrossis, together with certain other strains of luminous bacteria, form a clade that is related to but evolutionarily distinct from P. phosphoreum, and may constitute the major or sole bioluminescent symbiont of several families of deep-sea luminous fishes.

Genomic taxonomy of vibrios

TLDR
The combination of different analytical and bioinformatics tools will enable the most accurate species identification through genomic computational analysis and will culminate in the birth of the online genomic taxonomy.

Phylogenetic Diversity and Cosymbiosis in the Bioluminescent Symbioses of “Photobacterium mandapamensis”

TLDR
The results, which are the first report of bacterial cosymbiosis in fish light organs and the first demonstration that P. leiognathi is not the exclusive light organ symbiont ofLeiognathid fishes, demonstrate that the host species ranges of P. mandapamensis and P.LeIognathi are substantially distinct.

Phylogenetic analysis of the lux operon distinguishes two evolutionarily distinct clades of Photobacterium leiognathi

TLDR
It is demonstrated that P. leiognathi contains two evolutionarily and phenotypically distinct clades, P. mandapamensis and P. gyrB, which are based on a high degree of phenotypic and genetic similarity and which are distinct from each other.

Photobacterium chitinilyticum sp. nov., a marine bacterium isolated from seawater at the bottom of the East China Sea.

TLDR
On the basis of the polyphasic evidence, strain BEI247T is proposed as representing a novel species of the genus Photobacteria, for which the name Photobacterium chitinilyticum sp.

Comparative Genomic Analyses of the Genus Photobacterium Illuminate Biosynthetic Gene Clusters Associated with Antagonism

TLDR
These BGCs-rich Photobacterium strains represent great potential for bioactive secondary metabolites production and sources for novel compounds, and genome mining revealed that biosynthetic gene clusters involved in producing antimicrobial compounds in CCB-ST2H9 could contribute to the antagonistic potential.

Nucleic Acid Homologies Among Oxidase-Negative Moraxella Species

TLDR
The deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) base composition and DNA homologies of more than 40 strains of oxidase-negative Moraxella species were determined and evidence of a distant relationship between the two groups was obtained in competition experiments by using ribosomal ribon nucleic acid.

Deoxyribonucleic Acid Relationships Among Marine Vibrios

TLDR
Most strains isolated from diseased salmon in the Pacific Northwest proved to be virtually identical with V. anguillarum type C by DNA homology experiments, thereby differentiating them from similar strains isolated From diseased herring and occasionally from salmon.

Taxonomy of Marine Bacteria: the Genus Beneckea

TLDR
Nine groups which had deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) containing 45 to 48 moles per cent guanine plus cytosine (GC) were assigned to a redefined genus Beneckea, and all of the strains in this genus, when grown in liquid medium, had a single, polar flagellum.

Taxonomy of the marine, luminous bacteria

TLDR
Four species of luminous, marine bacteria isolated from sea water, surfaces and intestines of fish, as well as from the luminous organs of fish and squid were submitted to an extensive phenotypic characterization, supported by differences in the properties of the Luminous system.

Taxonomy of Marine Bacteria: Beneckea parahaemolytica and Beneckea alginolytica

TLDR
A collection of 169 strains, including 91 obtained from cases of gastroenteritis and 41 from localized tissue infections and infections of the eye and ear, was submitted to an extensive nutritional, physiological, and morphological characterization and could be readily distinguished from one another as well as from the remaining species of the genus Beneckea by multiple, unrelated, phenotypic traits.

Structure and Arrangement of Flagella in Species of the Genus Beneckea and Photobacterium fischeri

TLDR
Only one group (B-2) of marine bacteria included in this study was found to have polar, unsheathed flagella.

Taxonomy of the aerobic pseudomonads: Pseudomonas cepacia, P. marginata, P. alliicola and P. caryophylli.

TLDR
It is concluded that P. cepacia is so similar to P. multivorans that the latter name should be regarded as a synonym and P. alliicola appears to be a synonyms of P. marginata.

Taxonomy of Aerobic Marine Eubacteria

TLDR
Two hundred and eighteen strains of nonfermentative marine bacteria were submitted to an extensive morphological, physiological, and nutritional characterization, finding that the majority of these groups were separable by a large number of unrelated phenotypic traits.

PHENOTYPIC CHARACTERIZATION OF BENECKEA PARAHAEMOLYTICA: A PRELIMINARY REPORT

TLDR
The results indicated that this collection of strains, which included the type strain of Beneckea parahaemolytica, was phenotypically homogeneous and distinguishable from the other known species of BenECkea by multiple, unrelated, phenotypic traits.

The aerobic pseudomonads: a taxonomic study.

SUMMARY A collection of 267 strains, representing many of the principal biotypes among aerobic pseudomonads, has been subjected to detailed study, with particular emphasis on biochemical,
