Query: NC_013716:5201097 Citrobacter rodentium ICC168, complete genome

Lineage: Citrobacter rodentium; Citrobacter; Enterobacteriaceae; Enterobacteriales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Citrobacter rodentium is the causative agent of transmissible murine colonic hyperplasia in mice. This disease is characterized by a hyperproliferation of the epithelial cells in the colon similar to that found in humans suffering from idiopathic inflammatory bowel disease. In addition this organism contains virulence factors similar to those found in enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli and enteropathogenic E. coli. C. rodentium are being used as models for studying mucosal response to infection, colon tumor production, and virulence associated with pathogenic E. coli.

Subject: NC_008254:102465 Mesorhizobium sp. BNC1, complete genome

Lineage: Chelativorans; Chelativorans; Phyllobacteriaceae; Rhizobiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This organism was isolated from a mixed-culture enriched from sewage using the chelating agent EDTA (binds divalent cations - ethylenediamine tetraacetic acid) as the sole carbon and nitrogen source. EDTA is often found at toxic waste sites where it is bound to metals and radionuclides, which affects bioremediation efforts. This bacterium is capable of EDTA degradation by itself.
