Query: NC_009338:3410349 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_008712:250240 Arthrobacter aurescens TC1 plasmid TC1, complete sequence

Lineage: Arthrobacter aurescens; Arthrobacter; Micrococcaceae; Actinomycetales; Actinobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: The TC1 strain was isolated from a South Dakota, USA spill site soil that contained high concentrations (up to 29,000 microg/ml) of atrazine. Converts agricultural biomass to ethanol. Arthrobacter aurescens is found worldwide in the soil, water, and subsurface. It breaks down organic matter and is able to transform heavy metals into less toxic forms, such as the conversion of mercury salts into the neutral metal. It is also capable of utilizing t-anethole as a sole carbon source, and transforming it with high yield into valuable aromatic compounds which could potentially be used for aromas and flavorings.
