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.

General Information: This strain is capable of degrading paraffin, n-hexadecane, diesel. Acinetobacter sp. DR1 is a diesel degrader Gram-negative bacterium isolated from the soil of rice paddies in Soth Korea. They are found in many different habitats, including soil, water, and sewage, as well as in a variety of foodstuffs. They are also members of the normal microflora of human skin, and have been implicated as a presumed causative or contributory agent of numerous nosocomial (in-hospital) infections, especially those in immunocompromised individuals. Due to their genomic versatility, these bacteria are highly adaptive to treatment with various antibiotic reagents.
