Query: NC_012785:1960500 Kosmotoga olearia TBF 19.5.1, complete genome Lineage: Kosmotoga olearia; Kosmotoga; Thermotogaceae; Thermotogales; Thermotogae; Bacteria General Information: Gram-negative bacterium Kosmotoga olearia TBF 19.5.1 was isolated from an oil deposit. Broad temperature growth range. This organism is a member of the Thermotogales and has the characteristic morphology of one or more cells contained in a sheath-like envelope which extends beyond the cell wall. Preliminary sequencing of Thermotogales genomes has identified extensive horizontal gene transfer between these organisms and the Archaea.

General Information: This organism was originally isolated from a hot spring in Tengcong, China, and is the type strain for the species. Genomic analysis indicates it is similar to Bacillus halodurans and that it has one of the most biased leading strand distribution of genes. Although the organism has not been observed to be motile or to sporulate, it does contain genes for both functions. The bacterium produces acetate and ethanol from glucose and cannot degrade xylan and cellulose.
