Query: NC_015703:4933430 Runella slithyformis DSM 19594 chromosome, complete genome Lineage: Runella slithyformis; Runella; Cytophagaceae; Cytophagales; Bacteroidetes; Bacteria General Information: Environment: Fresh water, Host; Isolation: Fresh water lake; USA, Louisiana, Baton; Temp: Psychrophile. This is a species of curved, nonflexible, pink bacteria. The species is of interest because it is able to grow at temperatures as low as 4°C. The species epithet is derived from slithy, a nonsense word from Lewis Carroll's Jabberwocky for a fictional organism that is 'slithy' and the Latin word 'suffix' meaning '-like, in the shape of', yielding the Neo-Latin word 'slithyformis' meaning 'slithy in form'.

General Information: Chlorobium chlorochromatii CaD3 was isolated from a phototrophic consortia obtained from a freshwater lake in Germany. Chlorobium chlorochromatii is an green sulfur bacterium isolated from low temperature anaerobic fresh water habitats. This organism grows as part of a phototrophic consortium which consists of a colorless central bacterium surrounded by chlorosome-containing green sulfur epibionts. This organism is able to be grown in pure culture therefore is not an obligate symbiont. This organism is an obligate anaerobic phototroph able to fix nitrogen.
