Abstract Organohalide respiration (OHR) is a crucial process in the global halogen cycle and of interest for bioremediation. However, investigations on OHR are hampered by the restricted genetic accessibility and the poor growth yields of many organohalide-respiring bacteria (OHRB). Therefore, genomics, transcriptomics and proteomics are often used to investigate OHRB. In general, these gene expression studies are more useful when the data of the different ‘omics’ approaches are integrated and compared among a wide range of cultivation conditions and ideally involve several closely related OHRB. Despite the availability of a couple of proteomic and transcriptomic datasets dealing with OHRB, such approaches are currently not covered in reviews. Therefore, we here present an integrative and comparative overview of omics studies performed with the OHRB Sulfurospirillum multivorans, Dehalococcoides mccartyi, Desulfitobacterium spp. and Dehalobacter restrictus. Genes, transcripts, proteins and the regulatory and biochemical processes involved in OHR are discussed, and a comprehensive view on the unusual metabolism of D. mccartyi, which is one of the few bacteria possibly using a quinone-independent respiratory chain, is provided. Several ‘omics’-derived theories on OHRB, e.g. the organohalide-respiratory chain, hydrogen metabolism, corrinoid biosynthesis or one-carbon metabolism are critically discussed on the basis of this integrative approach.
