Query: NC_008347:3034100 Maricaulis maris MCS10, complete genome Lineage: Maricaulis maris; Maricaulis; Hyphomonadaceae; Rhodobacterales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Marine oligotrophs. Maricaulis maris MCS10 was isolated from Puget Sound in Washington, USA. Formerly Caulobacter maris, this organism inhabits marine environments and plays an important part in biogeochemical cycling of organic nutrients. This bacterium undergoes an unusual developmental cycle in which a swarming motile cell becomes a stalked cell that is attached to a solid surface. The stalked cell then undergoes asymmetric cell division and produces one flagellated motile daughter cell and one stalked daughter cell.

General Information: Plant symbiont bacterium. This organism contains a symbiosis island that is responsible for symbiotic relationships with plants (lotus) which is similar to what is observed with other Rhizobia that form similar relationships with legumes. The bacterium enters root nodules and performs nitrogen-fixation for the plant cell while being provided with a protective environment to grow in. Nitrogen fixation and root nodule formation genes are carried on a symbiosis island.
