NC_008576:2011959 Magnetococcus sp. MC-1, complete genome
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.
