Query: NC_013929:66500 Streptomyces scabiei 87.22 chromosome, complete genome

Lineage: Streptomyces scabiei; Streptomyces; Streptomycetaceae; Actinomycetales; Actinobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This organism is a soil bacterium which is the causative agent of scab disease and affects a variety of underground vegetables such as potato and radish. The characteristic earthy smell of freshly plowed soil is actually attributed to the aromatic terpenoid geosmin produced by species of Streptomyces. There are currently 364 known species of this genus, many of which are the most important industrial producers of antibiotics and other secondary metabolites of antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, and antitumor nature, as well as immunosuppressants, antihypercholesterolemics, etc. Streptomycetes are crucial in the soil environment because their diverse metabolism allows them to degrade the insoluble remains of other organisms, including recalcitrant compounds such as lignocelluloses and chitin.

Subject: NC_009921:5202607 Frankia sp. EAN1pec, complete genome

Lineage: Frankia; Frankia; Frankiaceae; Actinomycetales; Actinobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This strain was isolated at the Kettering Research Laboratory in Ohio, USA by M. Lalonde in 1978. It is resistant to lincomycin, kasugamycin, novobiocin, and, like many actinomycetes, to nalidixic acid. This strain is also resistant to elevated levels of lead, chromate, and arsenate.
