Query: NC_011969:3627980 Bacillus cereus Q1 chromosome, complete genome Lineage: Bacillus cereus; Bacillus; Bacillaceae; Bacillales; Firmicutes; Bacteria General Information: Isolated from a deep-subsurface oil reservoir in the Daqing oil field in northeastern China. This strain is non-pathogenic, and has potential for industrial use. Bacillus cereus is a Gram-positive, spore-forming bacterium of the B.cereus group. It is closely related to Bacillus anthracis and Bacillus thuringiensis. Bacillus cereus is a ubiquitous soil organism and opportunistic human pathogen most commonly associated with food poisoning, causing diarrheic (late onset) or emetic (quick onset) outbreaks.

General Information: Strain C-125 (JCM9153) was isolated in 1977 and is the most well studied alkaliphilic Bacillus organism. Alkaliphilic bacterium. This organism is similar to Bacillus subtilis but is alkaliphilic, grows poorly at neutral pH, and very well at pH >9.5. This bacterium produces a peptidoglycan that contains teichuronic peptides consisting of polyglutamic and polyglucuronic acids that counteract the halophilic environment.
