Query: NC_008577:4183361 Shewanella sp. ANA-3 chromosome 1, complete sequence Lineage: Shewanella; Shewanella; Shewanellaceae; Alteromonadales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: This strain was isolated from an arsenate treated wood pier that was in a brackish estuary (Eel Pond) in Woods Hole, Massachusetts. It is capable of converting As(V) to arsenite and may be used in bioremediation of contaminated sites.

General Information: Its genome indicates a motile, sporulating, sulfate-reducing, chemoautotrophic thermophile that can fix its own nitrogen and carbon by using machinery shared with archaea. Candidatus Desulforudis audaxviator is a gram positive sulfate reducing bacteria identified in fracture water from a borehole at a depth of 2.8 km in a South African gold mine. Water from these boreholes is very old (low-biodiversity fracture water), suggesting that these bacteria have been isolated from the Earth's surface for as much as several million years.
