Query: NC_006138:23902 Desulfotalea psychrophila LSv54, complete genome

Lineage: Desulfotalea psychrophila; Desulfotalea; Desulfobulbaceae; Desulfobacterales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This organism was isolated from marine sediments off of the coast of Svalbard, and can grow at temperatures as low as -1.7 degrees C. Sulfate-reducing bacterium. This organism grows on more complex organic compounds such as acetate, propionate, butyrate, lactate as well as by using simpler compounds such as hydrogen. This organism is an important part of global biogeochemical cycling of carbon and other nutrients.

Subject: NC_008260:1044440 Alcanivorax borkumensis SK2, complete genome

Lineage: Alcanivorax borkumensis; Alcanivorax; Alcanivoracaceae; Oceanospirillales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This bacterium was isolated from a seawater sediment sample in the North Sea. The species is able to use Mihagol-S (C14,15-n-alkanes) as a principal carbon source. Using n-alkanes as a sole carbon source causes the strains to produce extracellular and membrane-bound surface-active glucose lipids. Phenotypic analysis showed a restricted nutritional profile, high halotolerance, the absence of fermentative metabolism, and a low G+C content. This, in combination with a 16S phylogenetic study, allowed the placing of this organism into a new genus.
