Query: NC_009092:2833865 Shewanella loihica PV-4, complete genome

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

General Information: This strain is an environmental isolate from the Naha Vents, Hawaii, in the Pacific Ocean. Psychrotolerant 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 loihica is a psychrotolerant deep sea bacterium. This organism is able to reduce iron, manganese and uranium and may be useful for bioremediation at low temperatures.

Subject: NC_010334:3224009 Shewanella halifaxensis HAW-EB4, complete genome

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

General Information: This strain was isolated from sediment in a munitions-dumping area of the Emerald Basin (depth of 215 m, Atlantic Ocean), offshore of Halifax Harbour (Nova Scotia, Canada). It is capable of efficiently degrading RDX (hexahydro-1,3,5-trinitro-1,3,5-triazine), an explosive compound that contaminates the environment. This bacterium is an obligate respiratory organism.
