Query: NC_012793:3035978 Geobacillus sp. WCH70, complete genome Lineage: Geobacillus; Geobacillus; Bacillaceae; Bacillales; Firmicutes; Bacteria General Information: Temp: Thermophile. Recent rDNA analysis and DNA-DNA hybridization studies using spore-forming thermophilic subsurface isolates from formation waters of oilfields in Russia, Kazakhstan and China provided enough evidence to define the phylogenetically distinct, physiologically and morphologically consistent taxon Geobacillus. Geobacillus species are chemo-organotrophic, obligately thermophilic, neutrophilic, motile, spore-forming, aerobic or facultatively anaerobic Gram-positive bacterium.

General Information: Arsenate-reducing bacterium. Alkaliphilus oremlandii was isolated from Ohio River sediment, USA. This organism can reduce arsenate to arsenite, making it a potential bioremediation agent. It is a versatile strict anaerobic, spore-forming, low G+C gram positive bacterium that can ferment glycerol, fructose, and lactate, as well as respire arsenate and thiosulfate.
