Query: NC_008740:1484531 Marinobacter aquaeolei VT8, complete genome Lineage: Marinobacter hydrocarbonoclasticus; Marinobacter; Alteromonadaceae; Alteromonadales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Marinobacter aquaeolei VT8, also known as Marinobacter hydrocarbonoclasticus VT8, is a moderately halophilic, hydrocarbon-degrading bacterium isolated from an oil well off the coast of Vietnam. Hydrocarbon-degrading marine bacterium. This organism is a moderately halophilic, hydrocarbon-degrading bacterium which has been isolated from a number of hydrocarbon polluted marine environments. Marinobacter hydrocarbonoclasticus is able to produce biofilms as well as survive in open seawater.

General Information: Aerobic, motile, halophilic, alkane degrader, Gram-negative bacterium isolated from oil-contaminated surface water of the Bohai Sea at the Yellow River dock at the side of the Shengli oilfield. This organims is an efficient degrader of C5-C36 alkanes. This property makes it a good microorganism for further development towards a bioremediation tool for oil pollution in marine enviroment.
