Query: NC_011761:1499500 Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans ATCC 23270 chromosome, complete Lineage: Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans; Acidithiobacillus; Acidithiobacillaceae; Acidithiobacillales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: This organism was isolated from bituminous coal mine effluent. Acidophilic iron-oxidizing bacterium. Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans, formerly Thiobacillus ferrooxidans, is an acidophilic iron-oxidizing bacterium that is able to grow at a pH range of 1.3 to 4.0. This organism is often identified in acid mine drainage and as a member of microbial consortia involved in bioleaching. Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans has been identified as the dominant microorganism in percolation and continuous flow mineral leaching bioreactors.

General Information: Isolation: Obsidian Hot Spring in Yellowstone; Country: USA; Temp: Mesophile. Recent rDNA analysis and DNA-DNA hybridization studies using spore-forming thermophilic subsurface isolates from formation waters of oilfields in Russia, Kazakhstan and China provided enough evidence to define the phylogenetically distinct, physiologically and morphologically consistent taxon Geobacillus. Geobacillus species are chemo-organotrophic, obligately thermophilic, neutrophilic, motile, spore-forming, aerobic or facultatively anaerobic.
