UNLABELLED Multicellular biofilm formation and surface motility are bacterial behaviors considered mutually exclusive. However, the basic decision to move over or stay attached to a surface is poorly understood. Here, we discover that in Bacillus subtilis, the key root biofilm-controlling transcription factor Spo0A~Pi (phosphorylated Spo0A) governs the… (More)
Lysinibacillus fusiformis strain M5 is a potential hypoxanthine producer that was isolated from clay soil. Here, we present the draft genome sequence that was annotated in order to facilitate future studies of L. fusiformis M5.
