Query: NC_013665:1922000 Methanocella paludicola SANAE, complete genome
Lineage: Methanocella paludicola; Methanocella; Methanocellaceae; Methanocellales; Euryarchaeota; Archaea
General Information: This strain was isolated in Japan from rice paddy samples. Strain SANAE belongs to the Rice Cluster I (RC-I), a 16S rRNA and mcrA gene sequences-defined euryarchaeal lineage within Methanosarcinales and Methanomicrobiales. The RC-I group plays a key role in releasing methane from rice fields, which accounts for 10 to 25% of the global methane emissions.
