Project description:Halomonas axialensis is a halophilic bacterial species discovered near a deep-sea hydrothermal vent. Here, we report the first single closed genome sequence of the original strain, Halomonas axialensis strain Althf1. The genome was assembled by Nanopore sequencing and consisted of a single chromosome of 3.6 Mbp with 56.8% G+C content.
Project description:Here is the genome sequence of Haloparvum sedimenti DYS4, the type species of the genus Haloparvum, isolated from a salt mine. The DNA G+C content of this genome was 68.27 mol%. The scaffold N50 was 96,635 bp. The completely sequenced and annotated genome is 3,243,052 bp and contains 3,313 genes.
Project description:The whole-genome shotgun sequence of a moderately halophilic bacterium, Halomonas sp. strain SBS 10, was assembled and studied. The assembled genome size was 1.5?Mb, with a G+C content of 63.6%. The genome sequence of this Halomonas sp. SBS 10 isolate will be valuable in understanding gene clusters and functions involved in the adaptability of this bacterium to hypersaline conditions.
Project description:Halomonas meridiana strain Slthf1 (ATCC BAA-801) is a Gram-negative bacterium that was isolated from a thermal vent in 1998. Here, we report the complete genome sequence of this strain, which has a 3.6-Mbp genome, containing 3,400 protein-coding sequences.
Project description:We report the genome sequence of Halomonas sp. strain A3H3, a bacterium with a high tolerance to arsenite, isolated from multicontaminated sediments of the l'Estaque harbor in Marseille, France. The genome is composed of a 5,489,893-bp chromosome and a 157,085-bp plasmid.
Project description:Infectious bronchitis (IB) is a highly infectious avian pathogen, which affects the respiratory tract, gut, reproductive system, and kidney of chicks of all ages. Many different serotypes of IB virus (IBV) are recognized which cause different clinical manifestations. According to the antigenic differences, different serotypes of the virus do not cross-protect. Massachusetts serotype induces the best cross-protection against other serotypes. Recently, the IBV QX strain has been detected in Iran. QX strain causes permanent damage to the oviduct if it occurs in the early life cycle and is a significant factor in layer and breeder chicken flocks. In this study, we compare the H120 and Ma5 vaccines' protection against early challenge with the QX strain in commercial chicks. one-day-old commercial chicks were divided into six groups. Groups 1 and 2 were unvaccinated groups. Groups 3 and 5 were vaccinated with the H120 vaccine (eye drop) and groups 4 and 6 were vaccinated with Ma5 (eye drop) on the 6th day (5 days after vaccination). Groups 2, 3 and 4 challenged (oculonasal) with QX strain (10^4 EID50). Ciliostasis test, histopathology, and quantitative real-time RT-PCR were done at 11 days-old of age. Results showed that neither H120 nor Ma5 could induce proper cross-protection against QX early challenge, but the viral load and adverse pathological records in vaccinated chicks were less than that in the non-vaccinated groups. It can be concluded that vaccination on the first day of the life of a chick offers not full protection against the IBV QX strain but reduced the viral load and pathological damages in vaccinated chickens. Applying other forms of vaccination and using different genotypes on one-day-old chicks are suggested.
Project description:Halomonas strain GFAJ-1 was reported in Science magazine to be a remarkable microbe for which there was "arsenate in macromolecules that normally contain phosphate, most notably nucleic acids." The draft genome of the bacterium was determined (NCBI accession numbers AHBC01000001 through AHBC01000103). It appears to be a typical gamma proteobacterium.
Project description:Halomonas axialensisACH-L-8, a deep-sea strain isolated from the South China Sea, has the ability to degrade aldehydes. Here, we present an annotated draft genome sequence of this species, which could provide fundamental molecular information on the aldehydes-degrading mechanism.
