Query: NC_009485:3579323 Bradyrhizobium sp. BTAi1 chromosome, complete genome Lineage: Bradyrhizobium; Bradyrhizobium; Bradyrhizobiaceae; Rhizobiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: This organism is a photosynthetic rhizobium that is also capable of nitrogen-fixation, the first such example of such an organism. It can form nodules on the legume Aeschynomene indica and was isolated from this plant at the Boyce Thompson Institute for Plant Research in Ithaca, NY. It can form stem and root nodules. The photosynthetic reaction centers are similar to those found in purple photosynthetic bacteria and this microbe aids the plant in carbon metabolism and nitrogen metabolism.

General Information: Aeromonas salmonicida subsp. salmonicida A449 was isolated from a brown trout with furunculosis. The agent of furunculosis, a major cause of mortality among salmonid fishes. This bacterium is the causal agent of furunculosis. Although it was discovered nearly 100 years ago, it is not known how the diesase is spread. Furunculosis is temperature sensistive, with acute cases occurring when the water is above 20 degrees C and chronic cases developing at temperatures below 13 degrees C. The acute form of the disease causes the fish to turn a dark color and stop eating.
