Query: NC_017506:3717261 Marinobacter adhaerens HP15 chromosome, complete genome Lineage: Marinobacter adhaerens; Marinobacter; Alteromonadaceae; Alteromonadales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Country: Germany; Environment: marine water; Temp: 15C; Habitat: temperate shelf and sea biome; Isolation:German Wadden Sea. The marine bacterium strain HP15 was isolated from the German Wadden Sea. In order to isolate exclusively attached bacteria, aggregates (0.1 to 1 mm in diameter) were collected on a plankton net (0.1 mm pore size) from surface waters of 15 degrees C. Marine aggregates are densely colonized by bacteria from different taxonomic groups. Inter-specific interactions such as inhibition are important for colonization by aggregate-associated bacteria and thus affect the turnover of organic matter in the oceans. Strain HP15 is a colonizing bacterium which belongs to the Alteromonadaceae family within the class Gammaproteobacteria.

General Information: Mycobacterium MCS was isolated from soil in a wood preservative-contaminated land-treatment unit where remediation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) was occurring. This isolate mineralizes small- and large-ring PAHs, in contrast to other PAH-degrading microbes. Bioremediation of PAHs offers an attractive solution to pollution clean-up because it can occur on site and at relative little cost compared to alternatives. This isolate belongs to a fast-growing group of the mycobacterium genus that is defined as Gram-positive, acid-fast, pleomorphic, non-motile rods. Bioremediation of soils contaminated with wood preservatives containing polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) is desired because of their toxic, mutagenic, and carcinogenic properties. Creosote wood preservative–contaminated soils at the Champion International Superfund Site in Libby, Montana currently undergo bioremediation in a prepared-bed land treatment unit (LTU) process.
