Query: NC_014033:1691822 Prevotella ruminicola 23 chromosome, complete genome

Lineage: Prevotella ruminicola; Prevotella; Prevotellaceae; Bacteroidales; Bacteroidetes; Bacteria

General Information: These organisms are common rumen inhabitants. It is one of the most commonly isolated species from rumen contents and possesses the capacity to degrade plant cell wall polysaccharides, proteins, and peptides, contributing to the utilization of noncellulosic polysaccharides, such as starch and xylan.

Subject: NC_007517:1515493 Geobacter metallireducens GS-15, complete genome

Lineage: Geobacter metallireducens; Geobacter; Geobacteraceae; Desulfuromonadales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: First isolated from the Potomac river downstream of Washington, DC, USA in 1987. This organism actively moves towards metal attractants such as iron and manganese oxides, which are insoluble, and produces type IV pili for attachment to the insoluble substrates. Common metal-reducing bacterium. This organism, similar to what is observed in Geobacteria sulfurreducens, couples the oxidation of organic molecules to the reduction of iron by using insoluble Fe (III) as an electron acceptor under anaerobic conditions. This bacterium plays an imporant part of the nutrient cycling in aquatic environments. The cell can also use uranium and plutonium, therefore, this organism and may be important for the bioremediation of contaminated waste sites.
