Query: NC_008025:430487 Deinococcus geothermalis DSM 11300, complete genome Lineage: Deinococcus geothermalis; Deinococcus; Deinococcaceae; Deinococcales; Deinococcus-Thermus; Bacteria General Information: This organism was isolated from a hot spring at Agnano, Naples, Italy. Deinococcus geothermalis is a radiation resistant bacterium. This organism has been identified as a primary biofilm former on paper making machinery. The sequence of this organism will provide information on the mechanism and regulation of attachment and biofilm formation.

General Information: Environment: Fresh water; Temp: Mesophile. This is the first cultured species of the proposed new genus "Desulfurispirillum", and the sequencing of its genome will expand the range of experimental approaches that researchers can use to characterize its metabolic pathways for energy production and understand how these pathways are regulated. This organism is notable for its ability to reduce selenate to selenite and further to insoluble elemental selenium, in a process called dissimilatory selenate reduction.
