Query: NC_012029:1525929 Halorubrum lacusprofundi ATCC 49239 chromosome 1, complete genome Lineage: Halorubrum lacusprofundi; Halorubrum; Halobacteriaceae; Halobacteriales; Euryarchaeota; Archaea General Information: Formerly Halobacterium lacusprofundi, this organism is an extremely halophilic archaeon isolated from Deep Lake, Antarctica. Extremely halophilic archaeon isolated from the Antarctic. Halorubrum lacusprofundi is a red pigmented halophilic archaeon which has been found in hypersaline marine enviornments. Originally thought to be a psychrophile, further research determined that the optimum temperature for growth for Halorubrum lacusprofundi was from 31 - 37 degrees C.

General Information: Acinetobacter baumannii strain ACICU (also called H34) was isolated from an outbreak in an intensive care unit in Rome, Italy. This bacterium is commonly isolated from the hospital environment and hospitalized patients. It is an aquatic organism, and is often cultured from liquid medical samples such as respiratory secretions, wounds, and urine. Acinetobacter also colonizes irrigating solutions and intravenous solutions. Although it has low virulence, it is capable of causing infection. Most isolates recovered from patients represent colonization rather than infection. When infections do occur, they usually occur in the blood, or in organs with a high fluid content, such as the lungs or urinary tract.Infections by this organism are becoming increasingly problematic due to the high number of resistance genes found in clinical isolates. Some strains are now resistant to all known antibiotics. Most of these genes appear to have been transferred horizontally from other organisms.
