Query: NC_014499:63365 Candidatus Sulcia muelleri CARI chromosome, complete genome Lineage: Sulcia muelleri; Sulcia; ; Flavobacteriales; Bacteroidetes; Bacteria General Information: This organism is a gut symbiont of the Blue-Green Sharpshooter and several other leafhopper species. It synthesizes amino acids for the host, enabling the leafhopper to live on a diet of plant sap. The Blue-Green Sharpshooter is an important vector for Pierce's Disease in plants, caused by the spread of Xylella fastidiosa.

General Information: Thermotoga lettingae strain TMO was isolated from a methanol-degrading, sulfate-reducing bioreactor. Thermophilic, methanol-degrading organism. This organism, a member of the Thermotogales, has the characteristic sheath-like envelope which extends beyond the cell wall. The oxidation of methanol was more efficient when Thermotoga lettingae was grown as a co-culture with Methanothermobacter thermautotrophicus or Thermodesulfovibrio yellowstonii.
