Microbe >> Research >> Bacteria

Unicellular prokaryotic microbe. It mainly contains cocci, bacilli, spirillum, such as Bacillus anthracis, Vibrio cholerae, Shigella, Bacillus thuringiensis, E.coli, Bacillus subtilis, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Bifidobacterium.

The technology roadmap of the bacterial genome sequencing in BGI shows as following:


In 10K microbial genome project, BGI plan to sequence ~10,000 bacterial genomes using the next-generation sequencing technology. For those species that are very economical or scientific importance, BGI will allocate matching fund and look for collaborators all over the world.

Those bacterial genomes data finished at BGI is being updated every day:

Scientific name: 
Scientific name Genome size
Streptococcus suis 2 Mb
Thermoanaerobacter tengcongensis 2.7 Mb
mycobacterium tuberculosis 4.4 Mb
Yersinia pestis 4.6 Mb
Salmonella Choleraesuis 10 Mb
Penicillium chrysogenum 34 Mb
Arthrospira maxima 5.4Mb
Streptomyces 8.3Mb
Erwinia chrysanthemi 4.5Mb
Pyrococcus 1.7Mb
