General Information: Gram-negative, rod-shaped aerobe. Polyphosphate accumulating bacterium. This species was isolated from an anaerobic-aerobic sequential batch reactor operated under enhanced biological phosphorus removal conditions for wastewater treatment. The isolation strategy used targeted slowly growing polyphosphate-accumulating bacteria by combining low-speed centrifugations and prolonged incubation on a low-nutrient medium. This is the first isolated species in the Gemmatimonadetes phylum.
