Query: NC_013941:2544569 Escherichia coli O55:H7 str. CB9615 chromosome, complete genome

Lineage: Escherichia coli; Escherichia; Enterobacteriaceae; Enterobacteriales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: The E. coli O55:H7 strain CB9615 was isolated from an infant with diarrhea in Germany in 2003 and confirmed to belong to the same sequence type (ST11) as the O157:H7 clone by multilocus sequence typing. The O55:H7 and O157:H7 E. coli clones have been shown to be closely related. This organism was named for its discoverer, Theodore Escherich, and is one of the premier model organisms used in the study of bacterial genetics, physiology, and biochemistry. This enteric organism is typically present in the lower intestine of humans, where it is the dominant facultative anaerobe present, but it is only one minor constituent of the complete intestinal microflora. E. coli, is capable of causing various diseases in its host, especially when they acquire virulence traits. E. coli can cause urinary tract infections, neonatal meningitis, and many different intestinal diseases, usually by attaching to the host cell and introducing toxins that disrupt normal cellular processes.

Subject: NC_011026:2450325 Chloroherpeton thalassium ATCC 35110, complete genome

Lineage: Chloroherpeton thalassium; Chloroherpeton; Chlorobiaceae; Chlorobiales; Chlorobi; Bacteria

General Information: Chloroherpeton thalassium is a non-filamentous, flexing and gliding green sulfur bacterium isolated from marine sources off the North East coast of the USA in the 1980s. This organism is the most distant member of the green sulfur bacteria and is commonly found in aquatic microbial mats. Chloroherpeton thalassium is distinct from the other green sulfur bacteria in that it grows as a filamentous rod and is capable of gliding motility. Chloroherpeton thalassium is a photolithotroph, obtaining energy by anoxygenic photosynthesis using sulfide or sulfur as the electron donor. The photosynthetic apparatus consist of membrane-bound iron/sulfur reaction center associated with a light absorbing organelle, the chlorosome.
