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: Isolation: Lake sediment; Africa, Lake Kivu; Temp: Thermophile; Temp: 65C. Thermoanaerobacter brockii is a thermophilic gram positive anaerobe that has been isolated from lake sediment, oil wells and hot springs. This organism ferments hexoses and pyruvate and can reduce thiosulfate to hydrogen sulfide.
