Query: NC_007335:1053876 Prochlorococcus marinus str. NATL2A, complete genome

Lineage: Prochlorococcus marinus; Prochlorococcus; Prochlorococcaceae; Prochlorales; Cyanobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This strain was collected at a depth of 30 meters in the north Atlantic Ocean. 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.

Subject: NC_011026:1284966 Chloroherpeton thalassium ATCC 35110, complete genome

Lineage: Chloroherpeton thalassium; Chloroherpeton; Chlorobiaceae; Chlorobiales; Chlorobi; Bacteria

General Information: Chloroherpeton thalassium is a non-filamentous, flexing and gliding green sulfur bacterium isolated from marine sources off the North East coast of the USA in the 1980s. This organism is the most distant member of the green sulfur bacteria and is commonly found in aquatic microbial mats. Chloroherpeton thalassium is distinct from the other green sulfur bacteria in that it grows as a filamentous rod and is capable of gliding motility. Chloroherpeton thalassium is a photolithotroph, obtaining energy by anoxygenic photosynthesis using sulfide or sulfur as the electron donor. The photosynthetic apparatus consist of membrane-bound iron/sulfur reaction center associated with a light absorbing organelle, the chlorosome.
