NC_014654:646500 Halanaerobium sp. 'sapolanicus' chromosome, complete genome
Host Lineage: Halanaerobium hydrogeniformans; Halanaerobium; Halanaerobiaceae; Halanaerobiales; Firmicutes; Bacteria
General Information: Environment: Fresh water, Sediment; Temp: Mesophile; Temp: 34 - 42C. Organisms identified in the genus Halanaerobium (also known as Haloanaerobium) were first isolated from the Great Salt Lake in Utah, USA and have since been isolated from diverse saline environments such as oil reserviors, brine-seawater interfaces and hypersaline sediments. These bacteria are extremely salt-tolerant and are able to grow in concentrations of salt as high as 25%.
