Query: NC_011899:948790 Halothermothrix orenii H 168, complete genome

Lineage: Halothermothrix orenii; Halothermothrix; Halanaerobiaceae; Halanaerobiales; Firmicutes; Bacteria

General Information: Thermophillic halophile. Halothermothrix orenii H 168 was isolated from the sediment of a salt lake in Tunisia. This organism is a member of a group of anaerobic halophilic bacteria related to the Clostridia. This organism is a thermophile and therefore is able to grow in hot anaerobic saline environments.

Subject: NC_008380:4532969 Rhizobium leguminosarum bv. viciae 3841, complete genome

Lineage: Rhizobium leguminosarum; Rhizobium; Rhizobiaceae; Rhizobiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This biovar nodulates legumes in the Tribe Viciae (Vicia, Pisum, Lathyrus, Lens). This strain is a spontaneous streptomycin-resistant mutant of strain 300. Nitrogen-fixing plant symbiont. This organism, like other Rhizobia, establishes a symbiotic relationship with a legume plant, providing nitrogen in exchange for a protected environment. The legume roots secrete flavonoids and isoflavonoids which the bacteria recognize and use to turn on genes involved in root nodulation. Many of the root nodulation genes are involved in synthesis and secretion of a nodule inducing signal, a lipochito-oligosaccharide molecule, which the plant recognizes, triggering nodule formation. The bacterium is endocytosed and exists inside a membrane bound organelle, the symbiosome, and fixes nitrogen for the plant cell while the host cell provides carbon compounds for the bacterium to grow on. The nitrogen fixation is important as it obviates the need for expensive and environmentally damaging fertilizer use.
