Abstract Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a global problem hindering treatment of bacterial infections, rendering many aspects of modern medicine less effective. AMR genes (ARGs) are frequently located on plasmids, which are self-replicating elements of DNA. They are often transmissible between...
Abstract Members of the ‘Bacillus subtilis group’ include some of the most commercially important bacteria, used for the production of a wide range of industrial enzymes and fine biochemicals. Increasingly, group members have been developed for use as animal feed enhancers and antifungal...
‘Archaea are neither ‘odd’ bacteria, a view held by detractors of the third domain of life, nor are they ‘mini-eukaryotes’ as proposed by those who believed they would serve as simplified models for human cells. Instead, archaea have proved to be every bit as unique and diverse as bacteria and...
Abstract Bacillus thuringiensis is a well-known biopesticide that has been used for more than 80 years. This spore-forming bacterium belongs to the group of Bacillus cereus that also includes, among others, emetic and diarrheic pathotypes of B. cereus, the animal pathogen Bacillus anthracis and...
Abstract Planctomycetes are ubiquitous, environmentally and biotechnologically important bacteria that are key players in global carbon and nitrogen cycles. Ever since their first discovery in the 1920s they seemed to blur the prokaryote /eukaryote dichotomy. After initially being described as...
Abstract Microbial networks are an increasingly popular tool to investigate microbial community structure, as they integrate multiple types of information and may represent systems-level behaviour. Interpreting these networks is not straightforward, and the biological implications of network...
Abstract Bacteria use various strategies to compete in an ecological niche, including the production of bacteriocins. Bacteriocins are ribosomally synthesized antibacterial peptides, and it has been postulated that the majority of Gram-positive bacteria produce one or more of these natural...
