Query: NC_008576:1413778:1416599 Magnetococcus sp. MC-1, complete genome
Start: 1416599, End: 1416760, Length: 162
Host Lineage: Magnetococcus marinus; Magnetococcus; Magnetococcaceae; Magnetococcales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria
General Information: This magnetotactic bacterium was isolated from water from the Pettaquamscutt Estuary, in Rhode Island, USA. Migration is towards the anoxic/oxic interface which in the case of Magnetococcus sp. MC-1 is in a polar direction. The genome sequence of this organism will provide information on the production and regulation of the proteins involved in the magnetosome.
