Query: NC_013943:2705983 Denitrovibrio acetiphilus DSM 12809 chromosome, complete genome Lineage: Denitrovibrio acetiphilus; Denitrovibrio; Deferribacteraceae; Deferribacterales; Deferribacteres; Bacteria General Information: Isolation: Oil reservoir model column; Country: Norway; Temp: Mesophile; Habitat: Fresh water, Marine. This organism was first isolated from an oil reservoir modeling column under nitrate enrichment and reduces nitrate to ammonia. Stimulating the growth of nitrate-reducing bacterium in an oil well may prevent the growth of sulfate-reducing bacterium which cause reservoir souring by the production of H2S.

General Information: Methanococcus maripaludis is an obligately anaerobic, mesophilic, methane-producing archaeon. Growth on hydrogen and carbon dioxide results in the production of methane as a waste product. M. maripaludis stands out among methanogenic archaea as an ideal model species because of fast reproducible growth and effective genetic tools.
