Query: NC_013791:1033700 Bacillus pseudofirmus OF4 chromosome, complete genome Lineage: Bacillus pseudofirmus; Bacillus; Bacillaceae; Bacillales; Firmicutes; Bacteria General Information: This strain was isolated from soil in New York State by alkaline enrichment cultures. Because of its pH range and genetic accessibility, this alkaliphile has been extensively used as the model organism for studies of the bioenergetics of life at extremely high pH. This organism is a facultative, extreme alkaliphile that grows non-fermentatively as well as fermentatively in a pH range from near neutral to above pH 11.2.

General Information: Environment: Fresh water, Sediment; Temp: Mesophile; Temp: 34 - 42C. Organisms identified in the genus Halanaerobium (also known as Haloanaerobium) were first isolated from the Great Salt Lake in Utah, USA and have since been isolated from diverse saline environments such as oil reserviors, brine-seawater interfaces and hypersaline sediments. These bacteria are extremely salt-tolerant and are able to grow in concentrations of salt as high as 25%.
