The reference sequence was derived from CP000047. Bacillus thuringiensis 97-27 (subsp. konkukian (serotype H34)) was originally isolated from a case of severe human tissue necrosis (Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. konkukian (serotype H34) superinfection: Case report and experimental evidence of pathogenicity in immunosupporessed mice. Hernandez, E, Ramisse, F, Ducoureau, J-P, Cruel, T, and Cavallo, J-D. J Clin Microbiol 1998 36(7):2138-2139). B. thuringiensis is indigenous to many habitats worldwide; these include soil, insects, deciduous and coniferous leaves (Prediction of insecticidal activity of Bacillus thuringiensis strains by polymerase chain reaction product profiles. Carozzi, NB, Kramer, VC, Warren, GW, Evola, S, and Koziel, MG. Appl Environ Microbiol. 1991 57(11):3057-61). B. thuringiensis is an insect pathogen that is widely used as a biopesticide in commercial agriculture. Infection of humans is unusual. The apparent pathogenic properties of B. thuringiensis 97-27 are very unusual for B. thuringiensis; unlike most B. thuringiensis isolates, this isolate is very closely related to B. anthracis based on phylogenetic analysis (Fluorescent amplified fragment length polymorphism analysis of Bacillus anthracis, Bacillus cereus, and Bacillus thuringiensis isolates.

Appl Environ Microbiol 70(2):1068-1080. Plasmid and fosmid libraries were prepared at the Joint Genome Institute in Los Alamos (JGI-LANL), NM. Shotgun sequencing was performed at the JGI Production Genomics Facility (JGI-PGF) in Walnut Creek, CA to a coverage of 15x. Gene predictions were obtained using Glimmer. Basic analysis of the gene predictions was performed by comparing coding sequences against the PFam, COGS, BLOCKS and Prodom databases. Gene definitions and functional classes were added manually by a team of annotators at JGI-LANL, using BLAST results in addition to information from the basic analysis. A total of 80 genes have been annotated on the sequence record. COMPLETENESS: full length.
