Query: NC_009614:1461628 Bacteroides vulgatus ATCC 8482 chromosome, complete genome

Lineage: Bacteroides vulgatus; Bacteroides; Bacteroidaceae; Bacteroidales; Bacteroidetes; Bacteria

General Information: Normal gastrointestinal bacterium. This group of microbes constitute the most abundant members of the intestinal microflora of mammals. Typically they are symbionts, but they can become opportunistic pathogens in the peritoneal (intra-abdominal) cavity. Breakdown of complex plant polysaccharides such as cellulose and hemicellulose and host-derived polysaccharides such as mucopolysaccharides is aided by the many enzymes these organisms produce. Bacteroides vulgatus and Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron are the the most common fecal isolates from humans and other animals. Comparison of Bacteroides vulgatus with other Bacteroides species will provide information on their ability to colonize and exploit the intestinal environment.

Subject: NC_004431:279868 Escherichia coli CFT073, complete genome

Lineage: Escherichia coli; Escherichia; Enterobacteriaceae; Enterobacteriales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This strain (CFT073; O6:K2:H1) is uropathogenic E. coli (UPEC) one of the most common causes of non-hospital-acquired urinary tract infections. This organism was named for its discoverer, Theodore Escherich, and is one of the premier model organisms used in the study of bacterial genetics, physiology, and biochemistry. This enteric organism is typically present in the lower intestine of humans, where it is the dominant facultative anaerobe present, but it is only one minor constituent of the complete intestinal microflora. E. coli, is capable of causing various diseases in its host, especially when they acquire virulence traits. E. coli can cause urinary tract infections, neonatal meningitis, and many different intestinal diseases, usually by attaching to the host cell and introducing toxins that disrupt normal cellular processes.
