Abstract
ABSTRACT A single-contig, circular metagenome-assembled genome (cMAG) of Candidatus ( Ca. ) Patescibacteria was reconstructed from a mesophilic full-scale food waste treatment plant in Japan. The genome is of small size and lacks fundamental biosynthetic pathways. Taxonomic analysis using the Genome Taxonomy Database revealed that this cMAG belonged to the genus JAEZRQ01 ( Ca

Grove-level analysis of titer and prevalence of “Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus” and Wolbachia in Diaphorina citri, vector of citrus Huanglongbing

Ca. Liberibacter asiaticus
Abstract
Huanglongbing (HLB, or citrus greening disease) affects all citrus varieties world-wide. In the USA, Asia, and South America the causal agent is “Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus” (CLas), a phloem-limited, uncultured, alphaproteobacterium. The hemipteran insect vector, Diaphorina citri (Asian citrus psyllid) acquires and transmits CLas in a circulative, propagative manner. In addition to CLas, D. citri hosts multiple symbiotic bacterial species including Wolbachia (wDi). In D. citri, wDi has b

Refinement of the “ Candidatus Accumulibacter” genus based on metagenomic analysis of biological nutrient removal (BNR) pilot-scale plants operated with reduced aeration

“Accumulibacter”
Abstract
ABSTRACT Members of the “ Candidatus Accumulibacter” genus are widely studied as key polyphosphate-accumulating organisms (PAOs) in biological nutrient removal (BNR) facilities performing enhanced biological phosphorus removal (EBPR). This diverse lineage includes 18 “ Ca . Accumulibacter” species, which have been proposed based on the phylogenetic divergence of the polyphosphate kinase 1 (

Abstract
ABSTRACT Filamentous Chloroflexota are abundant in activated sludge wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) worldwide and are occasionally associated with poor solid-liquid separation or foaming, but most of the abundant lineages remain undescribed. Here, we present a comprehensive overview of Chloroflexota abundant in WWTPs worldwide, using high-quality metagenome-assembled genomes (MAGs) and 16S rRNA amplicon data from 740 Danish and global WWTPs. Many novel taxa were descri

Abstract
ABSTRACT The genomes of obligate bacterial co-symbionts of the green rice leafhopper Nephotettix cincticeps , which is notorious as an agricultural pest, were determined. The streamlined genomes of “ Candidatus Sulcia muelleri” and “ Candidatus Nasuia deltocephalinicola” exhibited complementary metabolic pathways for synthesizing essential nutrients that contribute to host adaptation.
