Query: NC_004347:1038253 Shewanella oneidensis MR-1, complete genome

Lineage: Shewanella oneidensis; Shewanella; Shewanellaceae; Alteromonadales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This strain was isolated from Oneida lake in New York, USA. Potential bioremediation organism. 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. This organism is a facultative anaerobe that is capable of using a wide variety of terminal electron acceptors during anaerobic respiration which may make it valuable for bioremediation. Since the bacteria can reduce chromium and uranium from the liquid phase to form insoluble compounds, they may be used to eliminate these two environmental pollutants from water.

Subject: NC_007204:696972 Psychrobacter arcticus 273-4, complete genome

Lineage: Psychrobacter arcticus; Psychrobacter; Moraxellaceae; Pseudomonadales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This strain is part of an analysis of the growth of organisms at and their adaption to low temperature, a study that is being conducted by Michigan State University as a member of NASA's Astrobiology Institute. Insight into how these organisms grow and adapt to life in low temperature environments could aid in understanding transport of microbes through space, either as a contaminant on human spacecraft, or as a passenger on an asteroid or comet.
