A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

The bacterial species is the basis for the study, identification, and diagnosis in medical and veterinary microbiology. More than 2000 species have been isolated from humans, while more than 100 are considered to be serious human pathogens (Hugon et al., 2015, Janda, 2017). The process for establishing an unequivocal nomenclature of bacteria is standardized and maintained internationally (Prokaryotic nomenclature up-to-date, n.d, Parte, 2018). Scientific publishers are trying to comply with this nomenclature as do internal identifiers in databases, including those relevant for diagnostics. Valid publication of species names defines 1 “type” strain, e.i., as the reference standard for taxonomic investigations and standardization of diagnostics tests. The International Code of Nomenclature of Prokaryotes (the “Code”) requires that “The type strain is made up of living cultures of an organism descending from a strain designated as the nomenclatural type.” (Rule 18a) (Parker et al., 2019). Deposit of living cultures in “… at least two publicly accessible culture collections in different countries, from which subcultures must be available.” (Rule 30) (Parker et al., 2019) is mandatory for valid publication of new species names.
