Query: NC_010368:1 Halobacterium salinarum R1 plasmid PHS3, complete sequence

Lineage: Halobacterium salinarum; Halobacterium; Halobacteriaceae; Halobacteriales; Euryarchaeota; Archaea

General Information: Chemoheterotrophic obligate extreme halophilic archeon. Halobacterial species are obligately halophilic microorganisms that have adapted to optimal growth under conditions of extremely high salinity 10 times that of sea water. This bacterium (strain R1; DSM 671) is an obligately halophilic archeon and represents the type species for the genus Halobacterium. The first recorded isolation of this organism came from the spoilage of salted fish. It is also commonly found in neutral salt lakes, marine salterns, proteinaceous products heavily salted with crude solar salt and ancient evaporate deposits.

Subject: NC_002608:64901 Halobacterium sp. NRC-1 plasmid pNRC200, complete sequence

Lineage: Halobacterium; Halobacterium; Halobacteriaceae; Halobacteriales; Euryarchaeota; Archaea

General Information: Chemoheterotrophic obligate extreme halophilic archeon. This microbe (strain ATCC 700922) is an obligately halophilic archeon that has adapted to growth under conditions of extremely high salinity. Motility is via tufts of polar flagella and intracellular gas vesicles are used for buoyancy. This organism grow aerobically and its ease of culturing combined with the availability of established methods of genetic manipulation in the laboratory make it an ideal model organism for study of the archaea.
