Query: NC_016901:1885694 Shewanella baltica OS678 chromosome, complete genome Lineage: Shewanella baltica; Shewanella; Shewanellaceae; Alteromonadales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Environment: Marine; Temp: Mesophile; Temp: 4C. This genus includes species that inhabit a wide range of environments and are capable of utilizing a wide variety of electron acceptors during anaerobic respiration including some insoluble metal oxides while using very few carbon sources such as lactate or acetate. This group of organisms have been studied extensively for their electron transport systems.

General Information: This species was isolated from a microbial community colonizing the accessory nidamental gland of the squid Loligo peali (Atlantic squid) for their capacity to respire on sulfur. It was placed in the Shewanella genus based on physiological and biochemical characteristics and 16S rRNA sequence analysis. Shewanella are ubiquitous in marine environment and play very important role in global carbon and nitrogen cycle. The present strain is moderately halophilic, requiring sodium ions for growth. Shewanella are facultatively anaerobic, Gram-negative bacteria, motile by polar flagella, rod-like, and generally associated with aquatic or marine environments.
