Query: NC_009051:419929 Methanoculleus marisnigri JR1, complete genome Lineage: Methanoculleus marisnigri; Methanoculleus; Methanomicrobiaceae; Methanomicrobiales; Euryarchaeota; Archaea General Information: Methanogen present in marine and freshwater sediments. Methanoculleus marisnigri was first isolated from sediment from the Black Sea, but has also been identified in freshwater sediments. This organism can use hydrogen, formate, and secondary alcohols, such as propanol and butanol, for methanogenesis.

General Information: This organism was originally isolated from a rice field sample in Thailand. Burkholderia thailandensis is a common soil saprophyte (lives on decaying organic matter in the soil). This bacterium is very similar to the human and animal pathogen Burkholderia pseudomallei but appears to be avirulent. Distinguishing the two organisms is very difficult and may depend on using monoclonal antibodies to detect differences in exopolysaccharide production.
