Query: NC_007948:3541987 Polaromonas sp. JS666, complete genome

Lineage: Polaromonas; Polaromonas; Comamonadaceae; Burkholderiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This strain was isolated from sediment contaminated with cis-dichloroethane (cDCE), a common pollutant resulting from widespread manufacture and use of industrial solvents. This bacterium is the only known organism capable of using cDCE as a sole carbon and energy source. The ability of this strain to convert ethene to epoxyethane suggests that the first step in the cDCE biodegradation pathway is the oxidation of cDCE to an epoxide compound. Bacteria that are able to grow on cDCE are rare, and have only been found in very few highly selective artificial environments. The discovery of this bacteria may provide a low cost, self-sustaining bioremediation method in areas where cDCE is a problem contaminant.

Subject: NC_007794:2839239 Novosphingobium aromaticivorans DSM 12444, complete genome

Lineage: Novosphingobium aromaticivorans; Novosphingobium; Sphingomonadaceae; Sphingomonadales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This strain, also known as F199, was isolated from a sample obtained at a depth of 410 m from a borehole sample that was drilled at the Savannah River Site in South Carolina, USA. Aromatic hydrocarbon-degrading bacterium. This organism is unusual in that it has glycosphingolipid in the cell envelope instead of the lipopolysaccharide found in most other gram negative organisms. It is typically isolated from a wide range of environmental sites.
