Query: NC_009879:860925 Rickettsia canadensis str. McKiel, complete genome

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

General Information: This organism was originally isolated from ticks in a field study on tick-transmitted diseases of small mammals in Canada. Member of the typhus group of Rickettsiales. Members of this genus, like other Rickettsial organisms such as Neorickettsia and Anaplasma, are obligate intracellular pathogens. In both groups, the bacteria are transmitted via an insect, usually a tick, to a host organism 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. Rickettsia canadensis was originally thought to be a member of the typhus group of Rickettsiales, however, it is now thought to represent a distict group with the rickettsia.

Subject: NC_009613:1337536 Flavobacterium psychrophilum JIP02/86, complete genome

Lineage: Flavobacterium psychrophilum; Flavobacterium; Flavobacteriaceae; Flavobacteriales; Bacteroidetes; Bacteria

General Information: Flavobacterium psychrophilum JIP02/86 (ATCC 49511) is a virulent strain. Flavobacterium psychrophilum cause cold water disease in salmon and trout. This bacterium causes septicemia in young fish (rainbow trout fry syndrome) and extensive lesions in adult fish. There is a high rate of mortality associated with these diseases with considerable economic impact for the aquaculture industry.
