The recent proposal by Lawson and Rainey (2015) to restrict the genus Clostridium to C. butyricum and related species has ramifications for the members of the genera that fall outside this clade that should not be considered as Clostridium sensu stricto. One such organism of profound medical importance is C. difficile that is a major cause of hospi...

Full-text available
The genus Clostridium as presently constituted is phylogenetically and phenotypically incoherent. Polyphasic taxonomic data indicate that the genus comprises a collection of very heterogeneous species. Numerous phylogenetic studies, principally based on sequencing of the 16S rRNA gene indicate that the genus Clostridium should be restricted to Clos...
Article
A species of a previously unknown Gram-positive staining, anaerobic, coccus-shaped bacterium recovered from a swine manure storage tank was characterized using phenotypic, chemotaxonomic, and phylogenetic methods. Comparative 16S rRNA gene sequencing studies and biochemical characteristics demonstrated that this organism is genotypically and phenot...

There are fundamental differences between the current levels of genomic and proteomic knowledge for bacteria and fungi. With multiple growth forms and over 100,000 known species, the fungi probably present a more complex situation, but genomic studies are hindered by the lack of reliable reference data for many species. As activities such as enviro...

A recent proposal by Tindall (2014; Int. J. System. Evol. Microbiol 64, 293-297) fails to recognize the importance of taxonomy in nomenclature. Thus, it incorrectly asserts that the family name Solimonadaceae Losey et al. 2013 is illegitimate. While Tindall (2014) correctly asserts that the family and order names Xanthomonadaceae Saddler and Bradbu...
