Query: NC_013961:3269368 Erwinia amylovora, complete genome Lineage: Erwinia amylovora; Erwinia; Enterobacteriaceae; Enterobacteriales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: This bacterium is the causative agent of Fire Blight, a destructive disease of Maloid fruit trees, such as apple and pear. Outbreaks are sporadic in the Northeast, but result in serious damage to roots, blossoms, fruit, and shoots when they occur. The pathogen overwinters in cankers or in smaller limbs. During early spring, in response to both temperature increases and bud development, the bacteria multiplies and may be seen as a yellowish ooze around the perimeter of the canker. Flies and other insects are attracted to the ooze and disperse the inoculum to other trees in the orchard. This species has recently become resistant to streptomycin, an antibiotic traditionally used in its control.

General Information: Country: USA; Environment: Fresh water; Isolation: Deep subsurface location at the Piceance Basin, Colorado, USA; Temp: Thermophile; Temp: 60C. Thermoanaerobacter sp. (strain X513) is an anaerobic, extreme thermophilic Gram-positive bacterium isolated by anaerobic enrichment culture from a deep subsurface sample (2000 m below the surface) taken from a core hole at the Piceance Basin, Colorado, USA. It can use a variety of electron donors, including glucose, acetate, hydrogen and xylose while reducing iron, chromium and uranium at 60 degrees.
