Query: NC_000963:676000 Rickettsia prowazekii str. Madrid E, complete genome

Lineage: Rickettsia prowazekii; Rickettsia; Rickettsiaceae; Rickettsiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This strain is an egg-passaged attentuated avirulent strain that has been used as a live vaccine and was originally isolated from a typhus patient in Madrid. This species is the causal agent of typhus. The bacteria are transmitted via an insect, usually a tick, to a host organism, in this case humans, where they target endothelial cells and sometimes macrophages. They attach via an adhesin, rickettsial outer membrane protein A, and are internalized where they persist as cytoplasmically free organisms. Transovarial transmission (from mother to offspring) occurs in the invertebrate host.

Subject: NC_011567:388358 Anoxybacillus flavithermus WK1, complete genome

Lineage: Anoxybacillus flavithermus; Anoxybacillus; Bacillaceae; Bacillales; Firmicutes; Bacteria

General Information: Anoxybacillus flavithermus, formerly Bacillus flavothermus, was isolated from a hot spring in New Zealand. This organism can tolerate a pH of up to 9.0. Gram-positive bacteria of the genus Anoxybacillus have been found in diverse thermophilic habitats, such as geothermal hot springs and manure, and in processed foods such as gelatin and milk powder.
