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_015259:1803266 Polymorphum gilvum SL003B-26A1 chromosome, complete genome

Lineage: Polymorphum gilvum; Polymorphum; ; ; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Polymorphum gilvum SL003B-26A1 is a type strain of a newly published novel species in the novel genus Polymorphum. It was isolated from a crude oil-polluted saline soil in Shengli Oilfield, China and could use the crude oil as the sole carbon source. Oil pollution has become a global issue because of its severe ecological impact and destruction. Bioremediation is proved to be an effective process to restore the oil polluted environments. The complete genome sequence of Polymorphum gilvum SL003B-26A1 provides new strategies for bioremediation of oil contaminated environment.
