Query: NC_005071:523423 Prochlorococcus marinus str. MIT 9313, complete genome Lineage: Prochlorococcus marinus; Prochlorococcus; Prochlorococcaceae; Prochlorales; Cyanobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Marine cyanobacterium. This non-motile bacterium is a free-living marine organism that is one of the most abundant, as well as the smallest, on earth, and contributes heavily to carbon cycling in the marine environment. This cyanobacterium grows in areas of nitrogen and phosphorus limitation and is unique in that it utilizes divinyl chlorophyll a/b proteins as light-harvesting systems instead of phycobiliproteins. These pigments allow harvesting of light energy from blue wavelengths at low light intensity.

General Information: Puniceispirillum marinum (strain IMCC1322) is a Gram-negative bacterium isolated from a surface seawater sample from the Western Pacific Ocean Margin (East Sea of Korea). This organism has no sequenced representatives but as a member of the SAR116 clade it is a cosmopolitan marine bacterioplanktonic assemblage. The organism contains putative CO-utilizing enzymes and has proteorhodopsin for a light-driven proton pump.
