  • Soil Location Description:
Soil was taken from directly under a tree at Cabana Beach Apartments in San Marcos, Texas. This area is a very open area and gets water daily from sprinklers. The water it gets daily is minimal, so it does dry quickly. The soil was a very dark brown color. Had almost a dry dirt look and feel to it.

Most common similar Bacteria: Bacillus Safensis:

*Gram-positive, spore-forming, and rod bacterium
Bacillus Safensis is a Gram-positive, spore-forming rod bacterium. Bacillus safensis is also an aerobic, chemoheterotroph. Cell size ranges from 0.5-0.7 μm in diameter and 1.0-1.2 μm in length. Bacteria are motile, and use polar flagella for locomotion. Cells are considered mesophillic, as they can grow in temperatures ranging between 10-50 °C

Genome Structure

Describe the size and content of the genome. How many chromosomes? Circular or linear? Other interesting features? What is known about its sequence? Include S Ribosomal sequence that you obtained from PCR and sequencing here.

Cell Structure, Metabolism and Life Cycle

Interesting features of cell structure; how it gains energy; what important molecules it produces.


Physiology and Pathogenesis

Biochemical characteristics, enzymes made, other characteristics that may be used to identify the organism; contributions to environment (if any).
If relevant, how does this organism cause disease? Human, animal, plant hosts? Virulence factors, as well as patient symptoms.
