Nitrosomonas NS 602

Nitrosomonas is a genus of rod-shaped gram negative bacteria chemoautotrophic bacteria. This organism oxidizes ammonia into nitrite as a metabolic process. Nitrosomonas are useful in bioremediation. They are important in the nitrogen cycle by increasing the availability of nitrogen to plants while limiting carbon dioxide fixation. The genus is...

Nitrobacter NB 601

Nitrobacter is a genus of mostly rod-shaped, gram-negative, and chemoautotrophic bacteria. Nitrobacter plays an important role in the nitrogen cycle by oxidizing nitrite into nitrate in soil. Unlike plants, where electron transfer in photosynthesis provides the energy for carbon fixation, Nitrobacter uses energy from the oxidation of nitrite ions,...
