Query: NC_010725:4219500 Methylobacterium populi BJ001, complete genome

Lineage: Methylobacterium populi; Methylobacterium; Methylobacteriaceae; Rhizobiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This species was isolated from tissue cultures of Populus, the Poplar tree. Colonies are pink to red, and the red pigment is water insoluble. Species of the genus Methylobacterium are strictly aerobic, facultatively methylotrophic, Gram-negative, rod-shaped bacteria that are able to grow on one-carbon compounds (e.g. methanol or methylamine), as well as on a variety of C2, C3 and C4 substrates. Only the type species, Methylobacterium organophilum, has been shown to use methane as the sole source of carbon and energy. Members of the genus are distributed in a wide variety of natural and man-made environments, including soil, air, dust, fresh- and marine water and sediments, water supplies, bathrooms, air-conditioning systems and masonry, and some are opportunistic human pathogens.

Subject: NC_007947:1556437 Methylobacillus flagellatus KT, complete genome

Lineage: Methylobacillus flagellatus; Methylobacillus; Methylophilaceae; Methylophilales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This strain was isolated from activated sludge found at the wastewater treatment plant in Moscow, Russia and is the fastest growing methylotroph discovered. Methanol-degrading bacterium. Methylobacillus flagellatus is a methylotroph, able to grow on compounds such as methanol and methyamines. These organisms play a role in the environmental cycling of carbon and nitrogen.
