Lineage: Cupriavidus metallidurans; Cupriavidus; Burkholderiaceae; Burkholderiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This strain was first identified in the heavy metal-contaminated sludge of a settling tank in Belgium in the late 1970s. This organism, formerly Ralstonia metallidurans, is capable of growth in the presence of a large number of heavy metals including silver, cadmium, chromium, cobalt, copper, mercury, nickel, lead, thallium, and zinc.

Subject: NC_020064:1409596 Serratia marcescens FGI94, complete genome

Lineage: Serratia marcescens; Serratia; Enterobacteriaceae; Enterobacteriales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This organism was discovered in 1819 by Bizio who named the organism after the Italian physicist Serrati. It was considered a nonpathogenic organism until late in the 20th century, although pathogenicity was noted as early as 1913. Serratia marcescens is an opportunistic human pathogen that is increasingly associated with life-threatening hospital-acquired infections. It is an environmental organism that has a broad host range, and is capable of infecting vertebrates and invertebrates, as well as plants. In humans, Serratia marcescens can cause meningitis (inflammation of the membrane surrounding the brain and spinal cord), endocarditis (inflammation of heart muscle) and pyelonephritis (inflammation of the kidneys). Many strains are resistant to multiple antibiotics. Environmental isolates are noted by production of the red pigment prodigiosin.
