NC_013440:8717500 Haliangium ochraceum DSM 14365, complete genome
Host Lineage: Haliangium ochraceum; Haliangium; Kofleriaceae; Myxococcales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria
General Information: Isolation: Seaweed collected from coastal sands from Japan; Temp: Mesophile; Temp: 30C; Habitat: Coastal, Marine, Sand. This organism, like other myxobacteria, undergoes a complex development and differentiation pathway. When cell density increases, the organism switches to "social motility" where aggregates of cells can gather together into masses termed fruiting bodies that may consist of up to 100 000 cells. Haliangium ochraceum is a true marine organism requiring 1-3% NaCl for growth.
