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: Isolation: Sweet gum stem wood buried in surface soil; Temp: Mesophile; Temp: 30 C; Habitat: Host, Wood. Paenibacillus sp. JDR-2 was isolated from sweet gum stem wood buried in surface soil. This organism is able to break down methylglucuronxylan in hemicellulose. Paenibacillus sp. JDR-2 may be useful in the production of alternative fuels from plant biomass.
