  • Brings together world experts and their research on the architecture, biochemical pathways, genetic organization, and gene regulation of Bacillus subtillis. (asmscience.org)
  • That Bacillus species constitute discrete genetic and phenetic entities raises interesting questions with regard to gene exchange and the evolution of the species. (asmscience.org)
  • spore
  • B. subtilis is a spore that has been studied in other space environment experiments. (universetoday.com)
  • It is possible to allocate many Bacillus species to one of six taxa that have distinguishable physiologies and, perhaps surprisingly, are generally consistent with the division of the genus based on spore morphologies. (asmscience.org)
  • bacteria
  • B. subtilis was chosen because it is one of the best studied bacteria ( 7 ) and is a model for low-G+C Gram-positive bacteria, which include both deadly pathogens, such as Bacillus anthracis , and bacteria widely used in food and industry, such as lactococci and bacilli. (pnas.org)
  • The increased number of well-defined Bacillus species described together with the physiological diversity that they will undoubtedly represent will present a formidable challenge to the taxonomist, but the outcome should be a fascinating insight into the evolutionary history of these bacteria and perhaps of endospore formation itself.

  • close
  • An unknown bacterial species cultured from the Yogu Farm™ probiotic dairy beverage was identified through 16S ribosomal RNA analysis as B. amyloliquefaciens , a phylogenetically close relative of Bacillus subtilis . (ingentaconnect.com)
  • formation
  • Given that repeated passage of bacterial isolates in liquid culture can select for the loss of social behaviors ( 8 ), we decided to investigate pellicle formation by natural isolates of B. subtilis . (pnas.org)
