Chlorobium sp. strain BS1 is a green sulfur bacterium cultivated from the chemocline of the Black Sea. Cells are rod-shaped, immotile and brown-colored. This bacterium forms an extremely dilute, but detectable population in the Black Sea at a depth of about 100 m. The ecological situation of phototrophic organisms in the Black Sea chemocline is comparable to that of plants grown at a distance of 50 m from a little candle in an otherwise pitch black greenhouse. The cells produce chlorosomes that are two-fold larger than those of another Chlorobium phaeobacteroides strain (DSM 266, the type strain) to take advantage of this small amount of light (adapted from
