Microorganisms utilize complex enzymatic pathways to biosynthesize structurally complex and pharmacologically relevant molecules. These pathways are encoded by gene clusters and are found in a diverse set of organisms. The Minimum Information about a Biosynthetic Gene cluster repository facilitates standardized and centralized storage of experimental data on these gene clusters and their molecular products, by utilizing user-submitted data to translate scientific discoveries into a format that can be analyzed computationally...

Bacterial surface colonization and biofilm formation often rely on the production of an extracellular polymeric matrix that mediates cell-cell and cell-surface contacts. In Escherichia coli and many Betaproteobacteria and Gammaproteobacteria cellulose is often the main component of the extracellular matrix. Here we report the complete genome sequence of the cellulose producing strain E. coli 1094 and compare it with five other closely related genomes within E. coli phylogenetic group A. We present a comparative analysis of the regions encoding genes responsible for cellulose biosynthesis and discuss the changes that could have led to the loss of this important adaptive advantage in several E...

A light pink coloured bacterial strain ERGS5:01 isolated from glacial stream water of Sikkim Himalaya was affiliated to Janthinobacterium lividum based on 16S rRNA gene sequence identity and phylogenetic clustering. Whole genome sequencing was performed for the strain to confirm its taxonomy as it lacked the typical violet pigmentation of the genus and also to decipher its survival strategy at the aquatic ecosystem of high elevation. The PacBio RSII sequencing generated genome of 5,168,928 bp with 4575 protein-coding genes and 118 RNA genes...

Planktotalea frisia SH6-1T Hahnke et al. (Int J Syst Evol Microbiol 62:1619-24, 2012) is a planktonic marine bacterium isolated during a phytoplankton bloom from the southern North Sea. It belongs to the Roseobacter group within the alphaproteobacterial family Rhodobacteraceae . Here we describe the draft genome sequence and annotation of the type strain SH6-1T . The genome comprises 4,106,736 bp and contains 4128 protein-coding and 38 RNA genes. The draft genome sequence provides evidence for at least three extrachromosomal elements, encodes genes for DMSP utilization, quorum sensing, photoheterotrophy and a type IV secretion system...

This genome report describes the draft genome and physiological characteristics of Bosea sp. WAO (=DSM 102914), a novel strain of the genus Bosea in the family Bradyrhizobiaceae . Bosea sp. WAO was isolated from pulverized pyritic shale containing elevated levels of arsenic. This aerobic, gram negative microorganism is capable of facultative chemolithoautotrophic growth under aerobic conditions by oxidizing the electron donors arsenite, elemental sulfur, thiosulfate, polysulfide, and amorphous sulfur. The draft genome is of a single circular chromosome 6,125,776 bp long consisting of 21 scaffolds with a G + C content of 66...

In this study, following its isolation from contaminated soil, the genomic sequence of Pseudomonas alcaliphila strain JAB1 (=DSM 26533), a biphenyl-degrading bacterium, is reported and analyzed in relation to its extensive degradative capabilities. The P. alcaliphila JAB1 genome (GenBank accession no. CP016162) consists of a single 5.34 Mbp-long chromosome with a GC content of 62.5%. Gene function was assigned to 3816 of the 4908 predicted genes. The genome harbors a bph gene cluster, permitting degradation of biphenyl and many congeners of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), a ben gene cluster, enabling benzoate and its derivatives to be degraded, and phe gene cluster, which permits phenol degradation...

Although the hemipterans (Aphididae) are comprised of roughly 50,000 extant insect species, only four have sequenced genomes that are publically available, namely Acyrthosiphon pisum (pea aphid), Rhodnius prolixus (Kissing bug), Myzus persicae (Green peach aphid) and Diuraphis noxia (Russian wheat aphid). As a significant proportion of agricultural pests are phloem feeding aphids, it is crucial for sustained global food security that a greater understanding of the genomic and molecular functioning of this family be elucidated...
