Query: NC_011060:459615 Pelodictyon phaeoclathratiforme BU-1, complete genome Lineage: Pelodictyon phaeoclathratiforme; Pelodictyon; Chlorobiaceae; Chlorobiales; Chlorobi; Bacteria General Information: Pelodictyon phaeoclathratiformeBU-1 was isolated from lake water in 1989. This organism is a phototrophic green sulfur bacteria that inhabits hydrogen sulfide-containing water and freshwater mud, brackish waters and marine environments. This organism forms net-like microcolonies and contains gas vescicles. It is believed that the gas vesicles provide the buoyancy necessary to keep the cell at the optimal depth for photosynthesis.
