Query: CP002516:1196000 Escherichia coli KO11, complete genome

Lineage: Escherichia coli; Escherichia; Enterobacteriaceae; Enterobacteriales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This organism was named for its discoverer, Theodore Escherich, and is one of the premier model organisms used in the study of bacterial genetics, physiology, and biochemistry. This enteric organism is typically present in the lower intestine of humans, where it is the dominant facultative anaerobe present, but it is only one minor constituent of the complete intestinal microflora. E. coli, is capable of causing various diseases in its host, especially when they acquire virulence traits. E. coli can cause urinary tract infections, neonatal meningitis, and many different intestinal diseases, usually by attaching to the host cell and introducing toxins that disrupt normal cellular processes.

Subject: NC_011884:2921618 Cyanothece sp. PCC 7425, complete genome

Lineage: Cyanothece; Cyanothece; ; Chroococcales; Cyanobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Cyanothece sp. PCC 7425 was isolated from a rice field in Senegal. Unlike some other Cyanothece strains, Cyanothece 7425 appears to be an obligate autotroph. Cyanothece may prove very important in biological hydrogen production, as it is missing the uptake hydrogenase enzyme.
