Buscoi <p>The Benchmarking Universal Single-Copy Ortholog (BUSCO) assessment tool is used, for eukaryotic and bacterial proteomes, to provide quantitative measures of UniProt proteome data completeness in terms of expected gene content. BUSCO scores include percentages of complete (C) single-copy (S) genes, complete (C) duplicated (D) genes, fragmented (F) and missing (F) genes, as well as the total number of orthologous clusters (n) used in the BUSCO assessment.</p> C:99.6%[S:99.5%,D:0.1%],F:0.3%,M:0.1%,n:777 desulfovibrionales_odb10
Completenessi <p>Complete Proteome Detector (CPD) is an algorithm which employs statistical evaluation of the completeness and quality of proteomes in UniProt, by looking at the sizes of taxonomically close proteomes. Possible values are 'Standard', 'Close to Standard' and 'Outlier'.</p> Standard

Sulfate-reducing bacteria have an important economic impact because they are involved in biocorrosion of ferrous metals in anaerobic environment. For example, their metabolism has several negative consequences for the petroleum industry (e.g. corrosion of the pumping machinery). These bacteria also contribute to bioremediation of toxic metal ions. Desulfovibrio alaskensis strain G20 (formerly Desulfovibrio desulfuricans) is a spontaneously nalidixic acid resistant derivative of the wild-type strain G100A that was isolated from an oil well corrosion site. Strain G20 has also been cured of a 2.3-kb cryptic plasmid found in the freshly isolated strain. Recently, a number of Desulfovibrio strains, including strain G20, have been found be able to reduce toxic metals such as uranium and chromium, a process that results in the production of less water-soluble species. The modification of solubility properties brought about by the change in the redox state of the metal presents itself as a potential avenue for bioremediation of contaminated ground waters or soils.
