Query: NC_017513:997716 Neisseria meningitidis G2136 chromosome, complete genome

Lineage: Neisseria meningitidis; Neisseria; Neisseriaceae; Neisseriales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: The second of two pathogenic Neisseria, this organism causes septicemia and is the leading cause of life-threatening meningitis (inflammation of the meninges, the membrane surrounding the brain and spinal cord) in children. This organism typically residies in the nasopharynx cavity but can invade the respiratory epthelial barrier, cross into the bloodstream and the blood brain barrier, and cause inflammation of the meninges. Pathogenicity factors include the surface proteins (porins and opacity proteins), and the type IV pilus (which is also found in Neisseria gonorrhoeae). This organism, like Neisseria gonorrhoeae, is naturally competent, and protein complexes at the cell surface recognize the uptake signal sequence in extracellular DNA, an 8mer that is found at high frequency in Neisseria chromosomal DNA.

Subject: NC_009952:2217877 Dinoroseobacter shibae DFL 12, complete genome

Lineage: Dinoroseobacter shibae; Dinoroseobacter; Rhodobacteraceae; Rhodobacterales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This aerobic anoxygenic phototroph was isolated from cultivated marine dinoflagellates originally from the Bay of Tokyo, Japan. Liquid cultures grown in the dark are distinctly pink, while colonies on complex agar media are dark red.
