Query: NC_010556:462500 Exiguobacterium sibiricum 255-15, complete genome

Lineage: Exiguobacterium sibiricum; Exiguobacterium; Bacillales Family XII; Bacillales; Firmicutes; Bacteria

General Information: This organism was isolated from a 2-3 million-year permafrost core in Siberia, Russia and can survive and grow rapidly at low temperatures. Analysis of long-term survival of psychrophilic organisms such as this one may aid understanding of the potential growth of organisms in astrobiology. Exiguobacterium sibiricum is a psychrotolerant organism able to grow at temperatures that range from -6 to 40 degrees C. This organism is also able to survive repeated freeze/thaw cycles which may contribute to its ability to survive in cold environments.

Subject: NC_008254:3246306 Mesorhizobium sp. BNC1, complete genome

Lineage: Chelativorans; Chelativorans; Phyllobacteriaceae; Rhizobiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This organism was isolated from a mixed-culture enriched from sewage using the chelating agent EDTA (binds divalent cations - ethylenediamine tetraacetic acid) as the sole carbon and nitrogen source. EDTA is often found at toxic waste sites where it is bound to metals and radionuclides, which affects bioremediation efforts. This bacterium is capable of EDTA degradation by itself.
