Lineage: Clostridium beijerinckii; Clostridium; Clostridiaceae; Clostridiales; Firmicutes; Bacteria

General Information: Solvent-producing bacterium. This genus comprises about 150 metabolically diverse species of anaerobes that are ubiquitous in virtually all anoxic habitats where organic compounds are present, including soils, aquatic sediments and the intestinal tracts of animals and humans. This shape is attributed to the presence of endospores that develop under conditions unfavorable for vegetative growth and distend single cells terminally or sub-terminally. Spores germinate under conditions favorable for vegetative growth, such as anaerobiosis and presence of organic substrates. It is believed that present day Mollicutes (Eubacteria) have evolved regressively (i.e., by genome reduction) from gram-positive clostridia-like ancestors with a low GC content in DNA. Some species are capable of producing organic solvents (acetone, ethanol, etc,), molecular hydrogen and other useful compounds. There are also species that can fix molecular nitrogen and thus are important participants in biological turnaround of nitrogen compounds in nature. This species is used to produce industrial solvents.

Subject: NC_009613:1337536 Flavobacterium psychrophilum JIP02/86, complete genome

Lineage: Flavobacterium psychrophilum; Flavobacterium; Flavobacteriaceae; Flavobacteriales; Bacteroidetes; Bacteria

General Information: Flavobacterium psychrophilum JIP02/86 (ATCC 49511) is a virulent strain. Flavobacterium psychrophilum cause cold water disease in salmon and trout. This bacterium causes septicemia in young fish (rainbow trout fry syndrome) and extensive lesions in adult fish. There is a high rate of mortality associated with these diseases with considerable economic impact for the aquaculture industry.
