A number of highly anticipated works have been accepted in recent weeks. These include (but not limited to):
- Our very extensive work (Simon et al.) on the phylogenomics of the Rhodobacteraceae which revealed evolutionary adaptation to marine and non-marine habitats
- A large-scale phylogenomic study (Hahnke et al.) on the genome-based taxonomic classification of Bacteroidetes – a work which elucidated and corrected many previous misclassifications and suggested the emendation of countless species descriptions.
