Query: NC_009092:4585784 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_008576:4701930 Magnetococcus sp. MC-1, complete genome

Lineage: Magnetococcus marinus; Magnetococcus; Magnetococcaceae; Magnetococcales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This magnetotactic bacterium was isolated from water from the Pettaquamscutt Estuary, in Rhode Island, USA. Migration is towards the anoxic/oxic interface which in the case of Magnetococcus sp. MC-1 is in a polar direction. The genome sequence of this organism will provide information on the production and regulation of the proteins involved in the magnetosome.
