Query: NC_009901:1516340 Shewanella pealeana ATCC 700345, complete genome

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

General Information: This species was isolated from a microbial community colonizing the accessory nidamental gland of the squid Loligo peali (Atlantic squid) for their capacity to respire on sulfur. It was placed in the Shewanella genus based on physiological and biochemical characteristics and 16S rRNA sequence analysis. Shewanella are ubiquitous in marine environment and play very important role in global carbon and nitrogen cycle. The present strain is moderately halophilic, requiring sodium ions for growth. Shewanella are facultatively anaerobic, Gram-negative bacteria, motile by polar flagella, rod-like, and generally associated with aquatic or marine environments.

Subject: NC_010334:1561691 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.
