Query: NC_008344:1 Nitrosomonas eutropha C91, complete genome Lineage: Nitrosomonas eutropha; Nitrosomonas; Nitrosomonadaceae; Nitrosomonadales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Nitrosomonas eutropha C91 was isolated from a sewage disposal plant in Chicago. Ammonia-oxidizing bacterium. This species consists of ammonia-oxidizing bacteria that catalyze the oxidation of ammonia to nitrite and contribute to the global cycling of nitrogen (a process called nitrification). This obligate chemolithoautotroph is studied for that reason.
