Query: NC_000913:2373984 Escherichia coli K12, complete genome

Lineage: Escherichia coli; Escherichia; Enterobacteriaceae; Enterobacteriales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This organism was named for its discoverer, Theodore Escherich, and is one of the premier model organisms used in the study of bacterial genetics, physiology, and biochemistry. This enteric organism is typically present in the lower intestine of humans, where it is the dominant facultative anaerobe present, but it is only one minor constituent of the complete intestinal microflora. E. coli, is capable of causing various diseases in its host, especially when they acquire virulence traits. E. coli can cause urinary tract infections, neonatal meningitis, and many different intestinal diseases, usually by attaching to the host cell and introducing toxins that disrupt normal cellular processes.

Subject: NC_007204:696972 Psychrobacter arcticus 273-4, complete genome

Lineage: Psychrobacter arcticus; Psychrobacter; Moraxellaceae; Pseudomonadales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This strain is part of an analysis of the growth of organisms at and their adaption to low temperature, a study that is being conducted by Michigan State University as a member of NASA's Astrobiology Institute. Insight into how these organisms grow and adapt to life in low temperature environments could aid in understanding transport of microbes through space, either as a contaminant on human spacecraft, or as a passenger on an asteroid or comet.
