This collection is registered with the World Data Centre for Microorganisms collection under no. WDCM-110.Genomic DNA from isolate 629 was extracted and sequenced using the Ion Torrent PGM platform (Life Technologies) 318 chip. A total of […]


Complete genome sequence of DSM 30083T, the type strain (U5/41T) of Escherichia coli, and a proposal for delineating subspecies in microbial taxonomy

Stand Genomic Sci
PMCID: 4334874
PMID: 25780495
DOI: 10.1186/1944-3277-9-2

[…] lture collections until the early 1920s, the original type cultures of E. coli got lost (just like those of the early isolates of other bacterial species). Strain U5/41T (= DSM 30083T = ATCC 11775T = WDCM 00090T) was isolated by Fritz Kauffmann at the State Serum Institute Copenhagen, Denmark in 1941 [], from the urine of a patient with cystitis, and was accepted as neotype of E. coli in 1963 []. […]


Diversity of culturable bacteria including Pantoea in wild mosquito Aedes albopictus

BMC Microbiol
PMCID: 3617993

[…] es in GenBank using the BLASTn program in the National Center for Biotechnology Information (http://blast.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/Blast.cgi). The Ribosomal Database Project II Chimera Check was used (http://wdcm.nig.ac.jp/RDP/html/analyses.html) to discard any chimeric sequences.Phylogenetic analyses were performed on a set of Pantoea sequences. Sequences of 16S rRNA genes from Pantoea isolates from mosq […]

[…] and expand out from there to include others. Initiate formal contacts with SILVA, MG-RAST and Moorea Biocode.Re-connect the WFCC database, now moved from Japan to China, to GBIF network. Now that the WDCM is developing the WFCC Global Catalogue of Microorganisms (GCM), much more data from WFCC culture collections will be available to GBIF.Deliver Japanese translation of DwC properties to GBIF.Deli […]


Bacteria in Crude Oil Survived Autoclaving and Stimulated Differentially by Exogenous Bacteria

PLoS One
PMCID: 3444520
PMID: 23028421
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0040842

[…] described , . Representative clones from each group were randomly picked and sequenced. All the sequences were checked with the CHECK-CHIMERA program in the Ribosomal Database Project (RDP-II, http://wdcm.nig.ac.jp/RDP/html/analyses.html) . Phylogenetic trees were then constructed using the neighbor-joining algorithm with the Jukes–Cantor correction factor in ARB . Tree topology was also evaluated […]
