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.

General Information: Isolated in 1989 from the leaf surface of a sugar beet plant grown at the University Farm, Wytham, Oxford, UK. Bacteria belonging to the Pseudomonas group are common inhabitants of soil and water and can also be found on the surfaces of plants and animals. Pseudomonas bacteria are found in nature in a biofilm or in planktonic form. Pseudomonas bacteria are renowned for their metabolic versatility as they can grow under a variety of growth conditions and do not need any organic growth factors. This organism is a nonpathogenic saprophyte which inhabits soil, water and plant surface environments. If iron is in low supply, it produces a soluble, greenish fluorescent pigment, which is how it was named. As these environmentally versatile bacteria possess the ability to degrade (at least partially) multiple different pollutants, they are studied in their use as bioremediants.
