Query: NC_009464:1397739 Uncultured methanogenic archaeon RC-I, complete genome Lineage: Methanocella arvoryzae; Methanocella; Methanocellaceae; Methanocellales; Euryarchaeota; Archaea General Information: This organism is a key methane producer in the rhizome of rice. A large portion of the methane that is emitted in rice fields is produced by methanogenic archaea. Rice Cluster I (RC-I) methanogens in the rice rhizosphere play a key role in this methane production.

General Information: Dehalogenimonas lykanthroporepellens BL-DC-9 is a strictly anaerobic, reductively dechlorinating Gram-negative bacterium isolated from groundwater at a superfund (law designs to clean up sites contaminated with hazardous substances) site located near Baton Rouge, USA, in an area contaminated by high concentrations of several chlorinated alkanes and alkenes. Dehalogenimonas lykanthroporepellens is able to reductively dehalogenate polychlorinated alkanes such as 1,2,3-trichloropropane and 1,2-dichloroethane.
