Query: NC_008816:518895 Prochlorococcus marinus str. AS9601, complete genome

Lineage: Prochlorococcus marinus; Prochlorococcus; Prochlorococcaceae; Prochlorales; Cyanobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This cyanobacterium was collected in the Arabian Sea at a depth of 50 meters and isolated by filter fractionation. It belongs to Clade HL-II, the most abundant group in the North Atlantic and North Pacific Oceans, often constituting over 90% of the total population. 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.

Subject: NC_007520:903799 Thiomicrospira crunogena XCL-2, complete genome

Lineage: Thiomicrospira crunogena; Thiomicrospira; Piscirickettsiaceae; Thiotrichales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This organism is a colorless sulfur-oxidizing bacterium isolated from a deep-sea hydrothermal vent. Sulfur-oxidizing bacterium. Thiomicrospira crunogena is a chemoautotroph commonly isolated from deep sea and shallow-water hydrothermal vents. This organism uses the oxidation of reduced sulfur compounds (thiosulfate, sulfide and sulfur) to generate the energy necessary to fix carbon and plays an important role in the cycling of sulfur in the marine environment.
