Query: NC_014802:441000 Campylobacter jejuni subsp. jejuni ICDCCJ07001 chromosome, complete

Lineage: Campylobacter jejuni; Campylobacter; Campylobacteraceae; Campylobacterales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Gram-negative, microaerophilic, flagellate, spiral bacterium, Campylobacter species are the leading cause of food-borne gastroenteritis in developed countries. Infection with C. jejuni is the most frequent antecedent to a form of neuromuscular paralysis known as Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS). Strain ICDCCJ07001 was isolated following a GBS outbreak in Shuangyang, a town in northern China in 2007, from a severely affected 15 year-old girl GBS patient who had been on a ventilator for 180 days. Her clinical symptoms were motor axonal neuropathy. This organism is the leading cause of bacterial food poisoning (campylobacteriosis) in the world, and is more prevalent than Salmonella enteritis (salmonellosis). Found throughout nature, it can colonize the intestines of both mammals and birds, and transmission to humans occurs via contaminated food products. This organism can invade the epithelial layer by first attaching to epithelial cells, then penetrating through them. Systemic infections can also occur causing more severe illnesses.

Subject: NC_006138:1245944 Desulfotalea psychrophila LSv54, complete genome

Lineage: Desulfotalea psychrophila; Desulfotalea; Desulfobulbaceae; Desulfobacterales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This organism was isolated from marine sediments off of the coast of Svalbard, and can grow at temperatures as low as -1.7 degrees C. Sulfate-reducing bacterium. This organism grows on more complex organic compounds such as acetate, propionate, butyrate, lactate as well as by using simpler compounds such as hydrogen. This organism is an important part of global biogeochemical cycling of carbon and other nutrients.
