Nitrobacter hamburgensis, gram negative bacteria, was isolated from soil of the Old Botanic Garden in Hamburg and of a corn field in Yucatan.  The main types of environments they inhabit are soil, building sandstone, and sewage sludge.  Its cells are 0.5-0.8 x 1.2-2.0 m in size.  They are pleomorphic; mostly pear-shaped and motile via one subpolar to lateral flagellum.  Intracytoplasmic membranes appear as caps of flattened vesicles or membrane vesicles in the central region of the cell.  The bacteria have an enzyme capable of oxidizing nitrite.  This is why it is important to sequence the genome of N. hamburgensis
