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: Bacillus megaterium is a naturally occurring soil bacterium, originally named because of its large size in relation to E. coli. This bacterium produces a number of useful enzymes, such as, amylases and proteases which have industrial uses. In addition this organism can be used for the production and export of other economically important compounds.
