Query: NC_014654:1529500 Halanaerobium sp. 'sapolanicus' chromosome, complete genome Lineage: Halanaerobium hydrogeniformans; Halanaerobium; Halanaerobiaceae; Halanaerobiales; Firmicutes; Bacteria General Information: Environment: Fresh water, Sediment; Temp: Mesophile; Temp: 34 - 42C. Organisms identified in the genus Halanaerobium (also known as Haloanaerobium) were first isolated from the Great Salt Lake in Utah, USA and have since been isolated from diverse saline environments such as oil reserviors, brine-seawater interfaces and hypersaline sediments. These bacteria are extremely salt-tolerant and are able to grow in concentrations of salt as high as 25%.

General Information: Bacillus pumilus SAFR-032 was isolated from the Spacecraft Assembly Facility at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, USA and produces spores highly resistant to UV radiation. A ubiquitous soil organism. Bacillus pumilus is a naturally occurring, ubiquitous soil microorganism. Commonly found in a variety of food commodities, some strains have developed an increased tolerance to gamma irradiation. This bacterium colonizes the root zone of some plants, where it inhibits soil-borne fungal diseases and nematodes. It is also undergoing evaluation for commercial production of cellulase, an enzyme used for conversion of cellulolytic materials to soluble sugars or solvents.
