Draft genome sequence of strain B 225, an iron-depositing isolate of the genus Novosphingobium

Braun, Burga ; Künzel, Sven ; Szewzyka, Ulrich (2018-04-12)

Here, we report the draft genome sequence of Novosphingobium sp. strain B 225, an iron-depositing bacterium isolated from a phenazone-amended naturally grown biofilm. This biofilm was grown in the Unteres Odertal National Park, Germany. Illumina NextSeq sequencing was used to determine the genome of the strain.

Draft genome sequence of actinobacterial strain Kineosporia sp. R_H_3, a neutrophilic iron-depositing bacterium

Braun, Burga ; Künzel, Sven ; Schröder, Josephin ; Szewzyk, Ulrich (2018-04-12)

The draft genome sequence of a neutrophilic iron-depositing actinobacterial strain, Kineosporia sp. R_H_3, is reported here. Detailed analysis of the genome can elucidate the role of specific cytochromes for Fe oxidation and how this organism might receive energy from Fe oxidation. To date, this is the second publicly available genome sequence of a Kineosporia strain.

Microbial population composition of ochrous biofilms and water samples obtained from technical groundwater-fed systems

Schröder, Josephin (2018)

This study assessed the abundance, composition, diversity and functional organisation of bacterial communities correlated to chemical water parameters in four technical groundwater-fed systems. Each sampling site was vulnerable to iron-clogging and was characterised by its own specific technical and hydrochemical conditions. Biofilm and groundwater samples were obtained and compared for drinkin...

Draft Genome Sequence of a Potential Nitrate-Dependent Fe(II)-Oxidizing Bacterium, Aquabacterium parvum B6

Zhang, Xiaoxin ; Ma, Fang ; Szewzyk, Ulrich (2016)

Aquabacterium parvum B6 is a potential nitrate-dependent Fe(II)-oxidizing bacterium. The genes related to its denitrifying mechanism and iron metabolisms were unknown. We present the draft genome of Aquabacterium parvum B6, which could provide further insight into the nitrate-dependent Fe(II)-oxidizing mechanism of strain B6.

Complete Genome Sequence of “Candidatus Viadribacter manganicus” Isolated from a German Floodplain Area

Braun, Burga ; Szewzyk, Ulrich (2016)

Iron- and manganese-depositing bacteria occur in many soils and all water systems, and their biogenic depositions of ochre in technical systems may cause severe clogging problems and monetary losses. “Candidatus Viadribacter manganicus” is a small coccoid, iron- and manganese-depositing bacterium isolated from the Lower Oder Valley National Park, Germany.

Draft Genome Sequence of Rheinheimera sp. Strain SA_1 Isolated from Iron Backwash Sludge in Germany

Schröder, Josephin ; Braun, Burga ; Liere, Karsten ; Szewzyk, Ulrich (2016)

Rheinheimera sp. strain SA_1 is an iron-depositing bacterium for which we report a draft genome sequence. Strain SA_1 was isolated from iron backwash sludge of a waterworks in Germany. The Illumina MiSeq technique was used to sequence the genome of the strain.

Draft Genome Sequence of Ideonella sp. Strain A 288, Isolated from an Iron-Precipitating Biofilm

Braun, Burga ; Künzel, Sven ; Szewzyk, Ulrich (2017)

Here, we report the draft genome sequence of the betaproteobacterium Ideonella sp. strain A_228. This isolate, obtained from a bog iron ore-containing floodplain area in Germany, provides valuable information about the genetic diversity of neutrophilic iron-depositing bacteria. The Illumina NextSeq technique was used to sequence the draft genome sequence of the strain.

Draft Genome Sequence of the Gram-Positive Neutrophilic Iron-Precipitating Kineosporia sp. Strain A_224

Braun, Burga ; Künzel, Sven ; Szewzyk, Ulrich (2017)

We report here the draft genome sequence of the neutrophilic iron-precipitating Kineosporia sp. strain A_224. Analysis of the predicted genes may improve our knowledge of its role in ochrous formations in natural and technical water systems. This is the first public genome sequence of a Kineosporia aurantiaca strain.

Draft Genome Sequence of Rheinheimera sp. F8, a Biofilm-Forming Strain Which Produces Large Amounts of Extracellular DNA

Schuster, Anna-Kathrin ; Szewzyk, Ulrich (2016)

Rheinheimera sp. strain F8 is a biofilm-forming gammaproteobacterium that has been found to produce large amounts of filamentous extracellular DNA. Here, we announce the de novo assembly of its genome. It is estimated to be 4,464,511 bp in length, with 3,970 protein-coding sequences and 92 RNA-coding sequences.

Zum Verhalten ausgewählter Triazolfungizide in der Umwelt und unter technischen Bedingungen

Mülow-Stollin, Ulrike (2018)

In order to ensure acceptable crop yield the use of plant protection products is inevitable. Triazole fungicides are a class of pesticides often used against a variety of fungal diseases in plants. During application an involuntary introduction into soil and surface water is possible, as well as a subsequent leaching into groundwater. In these environmental compartments the fungicides are s...

Production of extracellular DNA (eDNA) of the γ-Proteobacterium Rheinheimera sp. F8 in biofilms

Schuster, Anna-Kathrin (2017)

Abstract F8 is a gram-negative γ-Proteobacterium, which belongs to the genus Rheinheimera. The strain has been isolated from the South Saskatchewan River in Canada (Böckelmann, 2002). It has been discovered in previous studies that F8 releases DNA into the extracellular space (Böckelmann et al., 2006; Böckelmann et al., 2007). The aim of this study was a more detailed analysis of the F8 extrace...

Provision of water by halite deliquescence for Nostoc commune biofilms under Mars relevant surface conditions

Jänchen, Jochen ; Feyh, Nina ; Szewzyk, Ulrich ; Vera, Jean-Pierre Paul de (2015)

Motivated by findings of new mineral related water sources for organisms under extremely dry conditions on Earth we studied in an interdisciplinary approach the water sorption behaviour of halite, soil component and terrestrial Nostoc commune biofilm under Mars relevant environmental conditions. Physicochemical methods served for the determination of water sorption equilibrium data and survival...

Dynamic variation of the microbial community structure during the long-time mono-fermentation of maize and sugar beet silage

Klang, Johanna ; Theuerl, Susanne ; Szewzyk, Ulrich ; Huth, Markus ; Tölle, Rainer ; Klocke, Michael (2015)

This study investigated the development of the microbial community during a long-term (337 days) anaerobic digestion of maize and sugar beet silage, two feedstocks that significantly differ in their chemical composition. For the characterization of the microbial dynamics, the community profiling method terminal restriction fragment length polymorphism (TRFLP) in combination with a cloning-seque...
