Query: NC_005070:1978000 Synechococcus sp. WH 8102, complete genome Lineage: Synechococcus; Synechococcus; Synechococcaceae; Chroococcales; Cyanobacteria; Bacteria General Information: This strain is a motile strain that can be grown in both natural and artificial seawater liquid media. It was isolated from the tropical Atlantic ocean in 1981. The genome contains evidence of many phage integration events and analysis of the metabolic pathways show that this organism is capable of a more nutritionally diverse lifestyle than that of Prochlorococcus.

General Information: Common environmental anaerobe. The genus Pelobacter encompasses a unique group of fermentative microorganisms in the delta-proteobacteria. This species is ubiquitous in both marine and fresh water, and in anaerobic sedmiments. It is able to convert the unsaturated hydrocarbon acetylene to to acetate and ethanol via acetylaldehyde as an intermediate. These microorganisms may survive in some sediments as an Fe(III) or elemental sulfur reducer as well as growing fermentatively as an ethanol-oxidizing acetogen.
