NC_008345:2717945 Shewanella frigidimarina NCIMB 400, complete genome
Host Lineage: Shewanella frigidimarina; Shewanella; Shewanellaceae; Alteromonadales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria
General Information: This strain was isolated from the North Sea near Aberdeen, United Kingdom. Iron-reducing marine bacterium. This genus includes species that inhabit a wide range of environments and are capable of utilizing a wide variety of electron acceptors during anaerobic respiration including some insoluble metal oxides while using very few carbon sources such as lactate or acetate. This group of organisms have been studied extensively for their electron transport systems. Shewanella frigidimarina is an iron-reducing marine bacterium. This organism have been isolated from seawater, sea ice, and marine algae.
