Query: NC_006322:4149500 Bacillus licheniformis ATCC 14580, complete genome

Lineage: Bacillus licheniformis; Bacillus; Bacillaceae; Bacillales; Firmicutes; Bacteria

General Information: Industrially important bacterium. Under starvation conditions this group of bacteria initiate a pathway that leads to endospore formation, a process that is thoroughly studied and is a model system for prokaryotic development and differentiation. Spores are highly resistant to heat, cold, dessication, radiation, and disinfectants, and enable the organism to persist in otherwise inhospitable environments. Under more inviting conditions the spores germinate to produce vegetative cells. This organism is a soil-dwelling endospore-forming microbe similar to other Bacilli. This bacterium is used extensively in the industrial production of important enzymes such as proteases, penicllinases, and amylases as well as smaller compounds like the antibiotic bacitracin and various organic metabolites. This organism is closely related to Bacillus subtilis on the basis of rRNA typing, and it has been found to occasionally cause illness in humans.

Subject: NC_015428:823420 Lactobacillus buchneri NRRL B-30929 chromosome, complete genome

Lineage: Lactobacillus buchneri; Lactobacillus; Lactobacillaceae; Lactobacillales; Firmicutes; Bacteria

General Information: Environment: Host, Intestinal microflora; Isolation: Fuel ethanol production facility; Temp: Mesophile. Lactobacillus buchneri is a lactic acid bacillus commonly isolated from dairy and plant products as well as the human oral cavity. This organism is heterofermentative, producing acetic and lactic acid. It also has potential for use as a biofuel producing agent.
