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: Listeria are Gram-positive, motile, facultative anaerobic bacteria; L.seeligeri is one of the nonpathogenic members of the genus. Strain LSCC 3954, the type strain for this species, is a soil isolate from Germany. A contaminant of soft cheese, processed meat, and smoked seafood. More than 100 strains of this organism have been isolated from environmental samples and healthy animal carriers. This species can be distinguished from other Listeria by its ability to produce acid from D-xylose, L-rhamnose, and alpha-methyl-D-mannoside.
