The cells of Seliberia are rod-shaped and arranged in a spiral coil, 0.5-0.7x1-12 microns in size. The arranged cells form a star-like pattern or rosette. Seliberia reproduce by lateral division and budding. Round to oval "germ" cells are formed when grown on soil medium.

Seliberia is an organic chemotrophic bacteria. During cultivation, the bacteria do not require the addition of organic growth factors.
Seliberia are facultative anaerobic bacteria. The optimum growth temperature is 24-25°C.
Creative Biogene offers customizable Seliberia strain culture services. This service can help you obtain Seliberia cultures for subsequent scientific research. This service allows you to skip the complicated and tedious groping of culture conditions, which helps to speed up research on this strain.
The morphology of Seliberia stellate is the same as that of the genus. The size of the cells of Seliberia stellate depends on environmental conditions. The bacteria grew long cells on organic and inorganic complex media containing fulveenoic acid and chaperone oxides, but shorter on complex media containing palmitic acid. Seliberia stellate divides laterally to form cells that move with a subpolar flagella. The bacteria formed star-shaped aggregates during germination, which originated from the top or side of the rod-shaped cells, and the rod-shaped buds remained attached to the mother cell after germination.
Seliberia stellate can be grown on medium containing organic-inorganic complexes of fulvenoic acids and accompanying oxides, as well as on soil-dipped or water agar, very dilute broths and other organic media. Seliberia stellate can produce ferric hydroxide precipitates when grown in iron-containing media and soil.
Seliberia stellate's usual habitat is soil, where it can transform to produce different forms of humus.
