After the International Committee on Systematics of Prokaryotes (ICSP) had voted to include the rank of phylum in the rules of the International Code of Nomenclature of Prokaryotes (ICNP), and following publication of the decision in the IJSEM, we here present names and formal descriptions of 42 phyla to effect valid publication of their names, based on genera as the nomenclatural types. 
Harmonizing Prokaryotic Nomenclature: Fixing the Fuss over Phylum Name Flipping
This work suggests new names for the key bacterial phyla Proteobacteria (Proteobacteria), Firmicutes (Firmicuteota), Actinob bacteria (Actinobacteriota), and TenericuteOTA, while keeping the archaeal phylum names CrenarchaeOTA, Thaumarchaeota, and EuryarchAEota, to help researchers attain chaos-free uniform nomenclature.
Leptospira taxonomy: then and now
The changes that have taken place over more than a century in the classification system of these bacteria are described and the current state of the taxonomy of the genus Leptospira based on genome analysis is presented.
Aquirufa lenticrescens sp. nov. and Aquirufa aurantiipilula sp. nov.: two new species of a lineage of widespread freshwater bacteria
Two bacterial strains, 9H-EGSET and 15D-MOBT, were isolated from small freshwater habitats located near Salzburg, Austria, and genome-based phylogenetic reconstructions assigned the new taxa to the two distinct branches of the genus Aquirufa.
Editorial: Acidobacteria – Towards Unraveling the Secrets of a Widespread, Though Enigmatic, Phylum
This paper aims to demonstrate the efforts towards in-situ applicability of EMMARM, as to provide real-time information about the phytochemical properties of E. coli and other types of bacteria.
Comparative Analysis of Brucepastera parasyntrophica gen. nov., sp. nov. and Teretinema zuelzerae gen. nov., comb. nov. (Treponemataceae) Reveals the Importance of Interspecies Hydrogen Transfer in the Energy Metabolism of Spirochetes
The isolation of strain RmG11 from the intestinal tract of cockroaches is described, which represents a novel genus-level lineage of Treponemataceae and is metabolically distinct from T. zuelzerae and possesses the genomic potential to degrade other plant polysaccharides.
Discovery of deoxyribonuclease II-like proteins in bacteria.
Description of Corynebacterium poyangense sp. nov., isolated from the feces of the greater white-fronted geese (Anser albifrons)
The polyphasic taxonomic data shows that these two strains represent a novel species of the genus Corynebacterium, for which the name CoryneBacterium poyangense sp.
Detection of interphylum transfers of the magnetosome gene cluster in magnetotactic bacteria
It is demonstrated that the last common ancestor of all Nitrospirota was most likely not magnetotactic as assumed previously and the results imply a more significant role of HGT in the MTB evolution than deemed before and challenge the hypothesis of the ancient origin of magnetosome synthesis.
Physiological and Genomic Characterization of Actinotalea subterranea sp. nov. from Oil-Degrading Methanogenic Enrichment and Reclassification of the Family Actinotaleaceae
The phylogenomic, phenotypic, and chemotaxonomic characterization of the diversity of prokaryotes involved in anaerobic oil degradation in oil fields is determined and strain HO-Ch2T is proposed as the type strain of a new species within the genus Actinotalea.
Adaptation Potential of Three Psychrotolerant Aquatic Bacteria in the Pan-Okhotsk Region
Analyzing the adaptability of three representatives of the microbiota of the Pan-Okhotsk region characterized this bacterium as being adaptable to free living in marine conditions, even at winter temperatures.


Proposal to include the rank of phylum in the International Code of Nomenclature of Prokaryotes.
The International Code of Nomenclature of Prokaryotes is proposed to be modified to include the rank of phylum so that names of phyla that fulfil the rules of the Code will obtain standing in the nomenClature.
Public discussion on a proposed revision of the International Code of Nomenclature of Prokaryotes.
The procedure for this discussion of proposed revisions of the ICNP is presented and it is proposed that a public discussion of the document will start on 1 July 2021, to last for 6 months.
Emendation of Rules 5b, 8, 15 and 22 of the International Code of Nomenclature of Prokaryotes to include the rank of phylum.
Draft versions of the emended Rules 5b, 8, 15 and 22 are presented, based on the outcome of the ballot, to be included in the proposal for the preparation of a new revision of the International Code of Nomenclature of Prokaryotes.
International Code of Nomenclature of Prokaryotes.
This volume contains the edition of the International Code of Nomenclature of Prokaryotes that was presented in draft form and available for comment at the Plenary Session of the Fourteenth
Phylum XVII. Acidobacteria phyl. nov.
The phylum is identified on the basis of phylogenetic analysis of 16S rRNA gene sequences and contains two classes, three orders, three families, and six described genera.
Phylum XIV. Bacteroidetes phyl. nov.
Capitulo en el libro, Krieg, Noel R., et al. (eds.). Bergey's Manual of Systematic Bacteriology. Volume 4: The Bacteroidetes, Spirochaetes, Tenericutes (Mollicutes), Acidobacteria, Fibrobacteres,
Addendum: Comparative Genomic Analysis of the Class Epsilonproteobacteria and Proposed Reclassification to Epsilonbacteraeota (phyl. nov.)
This research presents a novel probabilistic procedure called “spot-spot analysis” that allows for real-time analysis of the response of the immune system to natural catastrophes.
Verrucomicrobia div. nov., a new division of the Bacteria containing three new species of Prosthecobacter
Four strains of nonmotile, prosthecate bacteria isolated in the 1970s and assigned to the genus Prosthecobacter were compared genotypically by DNA/DNA reassociation and 16S rDNA based phylogenetic analyses and complemented with phenotypic characterizations to clearly indicate each strain represents a novel species of bacteria.
