Table 1. Classification and general features of C. salexigens according to the MIGS recommendations [21].

From: Complete genome sequence of the halophilic and highly halotolerant Chromohalobacter salexigens type strain (1H11T)

MIGS ID Property Term Evidence code
  Current classification Domain Bacteria TAS [22]
  Phylum Proteobacteria TAS [23]
  Class Gammaproteobacteria TAS [24,25]
  Order Oceanospirillales TAS [24,26]

MIGS-4 Geographic location Bonaire, Netherlands Antilles TAS [1]
MIGS-5 Sample collection time June 1974 TAS [4]
MIGS-4.1 Latitude 12.25 NAS
MIGS-4.2 Longitude −68.26 NAS
MIGS-4.3 Depth surface NAS
MIGS-4.4 Altitude sea level NAS
  1. Evidence codes - TAS: Traceable Author Statement (i.e. a direct report exists in the literature); NAS: Non-traceable Author Statement (i.e. not directly observed for the living, isolated sample, but based on a generally accepted property for the species, or anecdotal evidence). These evidence codes are from of the Gene Ontology project [35].
