Comparative genomics of Collimonas bacteria

ABSTRACT: Collimonas is a genus of soil bacteria which comprises three recognized species: C. fungivorans, C. pratensis and C. arenae. The bacteria belonging to this genus share the ability to lyse chitin (chitinolysis) and feed on living fungal hyphae (mycophagy), but they differ in colony morphology, physiological properties and antifungal activity. In order to gain a better insight into the genetic background underlying this phenotypic variability of collimonads, we investigated the variability in the genomic content of five strains representing the three formally recognized Collimonas species. The genomic content of four test strains was hybridized on an array representing the reference strain C. fungivorans Ter331.
