Genus species Pseudomonas granadensis
Latitude: 30.26 degrees Longitude: 97.69 degrees
It was a clear day with a temperature of 64 degrees in the area of Govalle, East Austin on January 25th 2018. A ziplock bag was used to collect the soil from the area mostly from the surface about one inch deep. The location of the soil sample chosen was in a neighborhood field often frequented by dogs. Rainfall was 0.0" and the pressure was 35.35". The description of the location was mostly Bergstrom soils and urban land. 0-2% slopes and rarely flooded.
Description and Significance
Describe the appearance (colonial and cellular), possible antimicrobial activity etc. of the organism, and why the organism might be significant.
Cellular: gram negative aerobic
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.
