NH8B, complete genome Lineage: Pseudogulbenkiania; Pseudogulbenkiania; Chromobacteriaceae; Neisseriales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Originally isolated from an agricultural field in Niigata, Japan, where paddy rice and soybean were rotationally cultivated every 2 years. Denitrification.

General Information: Environment: Fresh water; Temp: Mesophile. This is the first cultured species of the proposed new genus "Desulfurispirillum", and the sequencing of its genome will expand the range of experimental approaches that researchers can use to characterize its metabolic pathways for energy production and understand how these pathways are regulated. This organism is notable for its ability to reduce selenate to selenite and further to insoluble elemental selenium, in a process called dissimilatory selenate reduction.
