Query: NC_015578:3266855 Treponema primitia ZAS-2 chromosome, complete genome

Lineage: Treponema primitia; Treponema; Spirochaetaceae; Spirochaetales; Spirochaetes; Bacteria

General Information: Treponema primitia was one of the first organisms isolated in pure culture from the hindgut of the Pacific dampwood termite Zootermopsis angusticollis. The physiology of this organism has been studied to provide information on its contribution to the growth and survival of termites.

Subject: NC_011769:3712497 Desulfovibrio vulgaris str. 'Miyazaki F', complete genome

Lineage: Desulfovibrio vulgaris; Desulfovibrio; Desulfovibrionaceae; Desulfovibrionales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Desulfovibrio vulgaris str. 'Miyazaki F' has one of the best characterized nickel/iron hydrogenases. A sulfate reducing bacterium. These organisms typically grow anaerobically, although some can tolerate oxygen, and they utilize a wide variety of electron acceptors, including sulfate, sulfur, nitrate, and nitrite. A number of toxic metals are reduced, including uranium (VI), chromium (VI) and iron (III), making these organisms of interest as bioremediators. Metal corrosion, a problem that is partly the result of the collective activity of these bacteria, produces billions of dollars in losses each year to the petroleum industry. These organisms are also responsible for the production of poisonous hydrogen sulfide gas in marine sediments and in terrestrial environments such as drilling sites for petroleum products. This species is a sulfate reducer commonly found in a variety of soil and aquatic environments.
