Abstract

Caloramator australicus strain RC3T (JCM 15081T KCTC 5601T) is the type strain of a newly identified thermophilic species, which was isolated from red microbial mats that thrive at 66àin the runoff channel of a Great Artesian Basin bore (New Lorne bore, registered number 17263) in outback Queensland, Australia. The ability of the C. australicus strain to use metals as terminal electron acceptors has led to concerns that it could colonize and enhance corrosion of the metal casing of Great Artesian Basin bore well pipes and that this could subsequently lead to bore failure and loss of water availability for the community which is so reliant on it. The genome of the C. australicus strain has been sequenced, and annotation of the 2.65-Mb sequence indicates that the attributes are consistent with physiological and phenotypic traits.
