Query: NC_009338:3359500 Mycobacterium gilvum PYR-GCK chromosome, complete genome

Lineage: Mycobacterium gilvum; Mycobacterium; Mycobacteriaceae; Actinomycetales; Actinobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This genus comprises a number of Gram-positive, acid-fast, rod-shaped aerobic bacteria and is the only member of the family Mycobacteriaceae within the order Actinomycetales. Like other closely related Actinomycetales, such as Nocardia and Corynebacterium, mycobacteria have unusually high genomic DNA GC content and are capable of producing mycolic acids as major components of their cell wall. These organism are common in soil and freshwater. Mycobacterium gilvum PYR-GCK was isolated from river sediment, Grand Calumet River in Northwestern Indiana, USA.

Subject: NC_008726:3858209 Mycobacterium vanbaalenii PYR-1, complete genome

Lineage: Mycobacterium vanbaalenii; Mycobacterium; Mycobacteriaceae; Actinomycetales; Actinobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Isolated from contaminated sites exposed to petrogenic chemicals in the watershed of Redfish Bay, Texas, USA in 1986. Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon-degrading bacterium. Mycobacterium vanbaalenii is a fast-growing soil mycobacterium which can degrade polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons such as fluoranthene, pyrene, phenanthrene. This organism may be useful for bioremediation.
