Query: NC_007517:1998342 Geobacter metallireducens GS-15, complete genome

Lineage: Geobacter metallireducens; Geobacter; Geobacteraceae; Desulfuromonadales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: First isolated from the Potomac river downstream of Washington, DC, USA in 1987. This organism actively moves towards metal attractants such as iron and manganese oxides, which are insoluble, and produces type IV pili for attachment to the insoluble substrates. Common metal-reducing bacterium. This organism, similar to what is observed in Geobacteria sulfurreducens, couples the oxidation of organic molecules to the reduction of iron by using insoluble Fe (III) as an electron acceptor under anaerobic conditions. This bacterium plays an imporant part of the nutrient cycling in aquatic environments. The cell can also use uranium and plutonium, therefore, this organism and may be important for the bioremediation of contaminated waste sites.

Subject: NC_016024:156000 Candidatus Chloracidobacterium thermophilum B chromosome chromosome

Lineage: Chloracidobacterium thermophilum; Chloracidobacterium; Acidobacteriaceae; ; Acidobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This organism produces bacteriochlorophyll a and c under oxic conditions and represents a new group of photosynthetic bacteria. The only known chlorophototroph in the phylum Acidobacteria. Aerobic photoheterotroph that lacks the ability to synthesize several essential nutrients. Naturally inhabits microbial mats of alkaline siliceous hot springs in Yellowstone National Park.
