Query: NC_009328:2905000 Geobacillus thermodenitrificans NG80-2 chromosome, complete genome

Lineage: Geobacillus thermodenitrificans; Geobacillus; Bacillaceae; Bacillales; Firmicutes; Bacteria

General Information: Geobacillus thermodenitrificans NG80-2 was isolated from oil reservoir formation water taken at a depth of 2000 m and a temperature of 73 degrees C. This strain can use crude oil as a sole carbon source and can degrade 16 to 36 carbon alkanes. Geobacillus thermodenitrificans NG80-2 produces an emulsifier which may be useful for high temperature biodegradation or other industrial purposes. Members of this genus were originally classified as Bacillus. Recent rDNA analysis and DNA-DNA hybridization studies using spore-forming thermophilic subsurface isolates provided enough evidence to define the phylogenetically distinct, physiologically and morphologically consistent taxon Geobacillus. Geobacillus species are chemo-organotrophic, obligately thermophilic, motile, spore-forming, aerobic or facultatively anaerobic.
