Query: NC_011916:467106 Caulobacter crescentus NA1000 chromosome, complete genome

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

General Information: Caulobacter crescentus NA1000 is a spontaneous mutant derivative of C. crescentus strain CB15. It is used by labs worldwide because it can easily be synchronized, allowing for studies of the bacterial cell cycle. Caulobacter vibroides, also known as Caulobacter crescentus, inhabits aquatic environments and plays an important part in biogeochemical cycling of organic nutrients. This bacterium undergoes an unusual developmental cycle in which a swarming motile cell becomes a stalked cell that is attached to a solid surface. The stalked cell then undergoes asymmetric cell division and produces one flagellated motile daughter cell and one stalked daughter cell. Thus, the asymmetric processes in this organism provide useful models for differentiation and development. This organism also contains a number of energy-dependent transport system, presumably enabling growth in the substrate-sparse aquatic environments that it lives in.

Subject: NC_005070:419261 Synechococcus sp. WH 8102, complete genome

Lineage: Synechococcus; Synechococcus; Synechococcaceae; Chroococcales; Cyanobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This strain is a motile strain that can be grown in both natural and artificial seawater liquid media. It was isolated from the tropical Atlantic ocean in 1981. The genome contains evidence of many phage integration events and analysis of the metabolic pathways show that this organism is capable of a more nutritionally diverse lifestyle than that of Prochlorococcus.
