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.

General Information: Candidatus Azobacteroides pseudotrichonymphae genomovar. CFP2 was isolated from a single cell of the protist Pseudotrichonympha grassii which resides in the termite gut. Gram-negative bacteria that are specifically found within the cytoplasm of the parabasalid protist Pseudotrichonympha grassii which resides in the hindgut of the termite Coptotermes formosanus. Candidatus Azobacteroides pseudotrichonymphae may be involved in providing nitrogen compounds for the host.
