Most Lyme borreliosis cases in Russia result from Borrelia garinii NT29 group infection. Borrelias of this group circulate exclusively in Ixodes persulcatus ticks, which are seldom found beyond Russia and the far east. Here we report the whole-genome sequence of Borrelia garinii BgVir isolated from an I. persulcatus female.
Permafrost is widely distributed in the Northern Hemisphere, and its age reaches hundreds of thousands and millions of years. Permafrost contains alive microorganisms which are not frozen due to relatively high temperature of the environment (-2...-8 degrees C), but the microorganisms are immobilized and therefore aged probably similar to the age of(More)
Bacillus cereus strain F was isolated and cultured from a sample of permafrost, aged presumably about 3 million years, on the Mammoth Mountain (62°56'N, 133°59'E). These genome data provide the basis to investigate Bacillus cereus F, identified as a long-term survivor of the extremely cold and close environment.
The population genetics of these species is studied, in particular, in order to develop an effective strategy of their conservation. Among the members of the genus Panax, the Korean and American ginsengs (Panax ginseng and P. quinquefolius, respectively) are the best studied because they are considered the most valuable among other ginseng species.
