oxidize ethanol to acetic acid, used to make vinegar, CaCO3 in agar --> HCO3 if

acid is made = clearing

fermented OJ

The page states in its footer that it takes content from this Wikipedia page, not the other way around. Yangosplat222 (talk) 18:34, 22 April 2013 (UTC)

Merge of Acetobacter[edit]

The Acetobacter page was recently merged into this one. I think it ought to have its own page as Acetobacter is a specific genus and thus a subset of all kinds of acetic acid bacteria. Discuss? Yangosplat222 (talk) 18:39, 22 April 2013 (UTC)

I think Acetobacteraceae and Acetobacter should have their own pages. I don't agree with the merging.--Miguelferig (talk) 18:01, 1 February 2014 (UTC)

Further reading section[edit]

I renamed the Academic references section to Further reading because that is more consistent with Wikipedia formatting; however, it's not exactly accurate, and ideally those sources should be moved into Acetic acid bacteria#References and cited in the body of the article.

Nomenclature for the bacteria that synthesize cellulose: Acetobacter xylinum?[edit]

The synthesis of cellulose by a bacteria is very interesting and does belong in the article. However, if I understand correctly, the current nomenclature is not Acetobacter xylinum. Instead, it's Acetobacter aceti subsp. xylinus , according to bacterio.net. My expertise isn't sufficient to determine the best way to present this in a Wikipedia article, so I will let someone else decide whether an edit is desirable.
