Query: NC_013440:4235489 Haliangium ochraceum DSM 14365, complete genome Lineage: Haliangium ochraceum; Haliangium; Kofleriaceae; Myxococcales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Isolation: Seaweed collected from coastal sands from Japan; Temp: Mesophile; Temp: 30C; Habitat: Coastal, Marine, Sand. This organism, like other myxobacteria, undergoes a complex development and differentiation pathway. When cell density increases, the organism switches to "social motility" where aggregates of cells can gather together into masses termed fruiting bodies that may consist of up to 100 000 cells. Haliangium ochraceum is a true marine organism requiring 1-3% NaCl for growth.

General Information: This strain is the index strain for transmission among CF patients in the UK. This species (genomovar III) is part of the Burkholderia cepacia complex, which consists of 9 closely related species, also known as genomovars. These organisms are commonly found in soil and all are opportunistic pathogens espcially in cystic fibrosis patients.
