Comments Taxonomy

Bacteroides ureolyticus has been proposed to be reclassified as Campylobacter ureolyticus based on sequencing and genomic amplified fragment length polymorphism analyses RefVandamme P, et al. Reclassification of Bacteroides ureolyticus as Campylobacter ureolyticus comb. nov., and emended description of the genus Campylobacter. Int J Syst Evol Microbiol 60(Pt 9): 2016-2022, 2010. PubMed: 19801389 . At this time, the ATCC recognizes both names for this organism.
