Bacteroidetes

Abstract:

Many clones and isolates affiliated to the Bacteroidetes have been reported from hydrocarbon-contaminated environments. However, most of these isolates could not be confirmed as hydrocarbon degraders. Only one strain, Yeosuana aromativorans, is reported to be a hydrocarbon-degrading species of the Bacteroidetes. Some other isolates, belonging to Bacteroidetes, will also be described.
