Query: NC_009953:3385428 Salinispora arenicola CNS-205 chromosome, complete genome

Lineage: Salinispora arenicola; Salinispora; Micromonosporaceae; Actinomycetales; Actinobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Found in marine sediment, this organism produces cancer-fighting compounds. Salinispora strains are commonly isolated from tropical marine sediment. Members of this genus produce branched hyphae and require media which contain seawater or sodium. A survey of the cultured species identified over 90 isolates which produce compounds that inhibited cancer cells. These organisms may be a new source of bioactive chemicals for use in disease and cancer treatments. Salinispora arenicola produces the bioactive compounds staurosporine and rifamycin which may be useful in the treatment of cancer.

Subject: NC_014100:1144463 Caulobacter segnis ATCC 21756 chromosome, complete genome

Lineage: Caulobacter segnis; Caulobacter; Caulobacteraceae; Caulobacterales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Isolation: Soil; Temp: Mesophile; Habitat: Fresh water. Caulobacter segnis strain ATCC 21756 is a prostheca-less bacterium belonging to the genus Caulobacter; it was isolated from soil although its habitat is considered to be fresh-water. The absence of a stalk in this genus makes this an interesting bacterium to study.
