Query: NC_007954:1823085 Shewanella denitrificans OS217, complete genome

Lineage: Shewanella denitrificans; Shewanella; Shewanellaceae; Alteromonadales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Isolated from the Gotland Deep, an anoxic basin in the central Baltic Sea in 1986 from a depth of 120-130 m. Denitrifying marine bacterium. This genus includes species that inhabit a wide range of environments and are capable of utilizing a wide variety of electron acceptors during anaerobic respiration including some insoluble metal oxides while using very few carbon sources such as lactate or acetate. This group of organisms have been studied extensively for their electron transport systems. Shewanella denitrificans is a vigorous denitrifier, able to convert nitrite and nitrate to nitrogen. This organism has been isolated from seawater and may play a significant role in nitrogen cycling in marine environments.

Subject: NC_008781:3056407 Polaromonas naphthalenivorans CJ2, complete genome

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

General Information: Naphthalene-degrading bacterium. Polaromonas naphthalenivorans was isolated from naphthalene-contaminated, freshwater sediment. This organism is capable of aerobic degradation of naphthalene at temperatures of less than 20 degrees C. Naphthalene is a polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH). PAHs can be toxic and/or carcinogenic, therefore PAH contamination is of considerable concern.
