Query: NC_020244:1264500 Bacillus subtilis XF-1, complete genome

Lineage: Bacillus subtilis; Bacillus; Bacillaceae; Bacillales; Firmicutes; Bacteria

General Information: This organism was one of the first bacteria studied, and was named Vibrio subtilis in 1835 and renamed Bacillus subtilis in 1872. It is one of the most well characterized bacterial organisms, and is a model system for cell differentiation and development. This soil bacterium can divide asymmetrically, producing an endospore that is resistant to environmental factors such as heat, acid, and salt, and which can persist in the environment for long periods of time. The endospore is formed at times of nutritional stress, allowing the organism to persist in the environment until conditions become favorable. Prior to the decision to produce the spore the bacterium might become motile, through the production of flagella, and also take up DNA from the environment through the competence system. The sporulation process is complex and involves the coordinated regulation of hundreds of genes in the genome. This initial step results in the coordinated asymmetric cellular division and endospore formation through multiple stages that produces a single spore from the mother cell.

Subject: NC_006582:3949832 Bacillus clausii KSM-K16, complete genome

Lineage: Bacillus clausii; Bacillus; Bacillaceae; Bacillales; Firmicutes; Bacteria

General Information: Alkaliphilic strain of was isolated from soil. Alkaline-tolerant bacterium. Bacillus clausii is able to tolerate high pH levels and produces alkaline-tolerant enzymes particularly alkaline proteases. B. clausii have been isolated from soil and water. This organism has also been reported to have a beneficial effect in the human gut and is being considered for use as a probiotic.
