Query: NC_011753:206178 Vibrio splendidus LGP32 chromosome 1, complete genome Lineage: Vibrio splendidus; Vibrio; Vibrionaceae; Vibrionales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Vibrio splendidus LGP32 (CIP 107715) caused significant mortalities in oysters, Crassostrea gigas, during the summer of 2001. This genus is abundant in marine or freshwater environments such as estuaries, brackish ponds, or coastal areas; regions that provide an important reservoir for the organism in between outbreaks of the disease. Vibrio can affect shellfish, finfish, and other marine animals and a number of species are pathogenic for humans. This microbe inflicts disease and death in many marine species causing massive damage to industries devoted to their production, including fish, oysters, mussels, and scallops.

General Information: Isolated from shallow marine deposits (coastal shelf mud) of the Amazon River delta off of the coast of Brazil. Iron-reducing bacterium. This genus includes species that inhabit a wide range of environments and are capable of utilizing a wide variety of electron acceptors during anaerobic respiration including some insoluble metal oxides while using very few carbon sources such as lactate or acetate. This group of organisms have been studied extensively for their electron transport systems. Shewanella amazonensis is capable of anaerobically reducing iron, manganese, and sulfur compounds and may be important to the cycling of these compounds in the environment.
