Query: NC_008312:4795204 Trichodesmium erythraeum IMS101, complete genome

Lineage: Trichodesmium erythraeum; Trichodesmium; ; Oscillatoriales; Cyanobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Trichodesmium erythraeum strain IMS101 was isolated from the North Carolina coast in 1992 and grows in straight filaments. Filamentous marine cyanobacterium. This filamentous marine cyanobacterium is a nitrogen-fixing organism that contribues a significant amount of the global fixed nitrogen each year. These bacteria are unusual in that nitrogen fixation takes place in a differentiated cell called the diazocyte which is different from the nitrogen-fixing differentiated cell (heterocyst) found in other cyanobacteria. The diazocyte is developed in order to protect the oxygen-sensitive nitrogenases and includes a number of changes including production of more membranes and down-regulation of photosynthetic activity during times of peak nitrogen fixation (noontime). This organism gives the Red Sea its name when large blooms appear and is one of the organisms most often associated with large blooms in marine waters.

Lineage: Lactococcus garvieae; Lactococcus; Streptococcaceae; Lactobacillales; Firmicutes; Bacteria

General Information: Lactococcus garviae is responsible for mastitis in cows and buffalos, and it has been isolated from clinical specimens of human blood, urine, and skin. Lactococcus garvieae is also a well recognized bacterial fish pathogen. L. garvieae as the etiological agent of a hemorrhagic septicemia in farmed trout that was characterized by bilateral exophthalmos, darkening of the skin, congestion of the intestine, liver, kidney, spleen, and brain.
