Genus species Pseudomonas granadensis

Habitat Information

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


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.
