Query: NC_005071:988815 Prochlorococcus marinus str. MIT 9313, complete genome Lineage: Prochlorococcus marinus; Prochlorococcus; Prochlorococcaceae; Prochlorales; Cyanobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Marine cyanobacterium. This non-motile bacterium is a free-living marine organism that is one of the most abundant, as well as the smallest, on earth, and contributes heavily to carbon cycling in the marine environment. This cyanobacterium grows in areas of nitrogen and phosphorus limitation and is unique in that it utilizes divinyl chlorophyll a/b proteins as light-harvesting systems instead of phycobiliproteins. These pigments allow harvesting of light energy from blue wavelengths at low light intensity.

General Information: An aerobic, non spore-forming, non-motile, Gram-negative bacterium isolated from the surfaces of smear-ripened cheese (French cheese "Reblochon"). Arthrobacter arilaitensis is one of the main bacterial species found at the surface of cheeses, especially in smear-ripened cheeses, where it contributes to the typical colour, flavour and texture properties of the final product.
