    Default Well That 'Splanes It. This Bacteria Contains A Rare Chromosome

    If you're like me this has been keeping you up late at night:

    http://www.physorg.com/news140715842.html

    This is the first time anything like this has been found in photosynthetic bacteria. It's extremely rare for bacteria to have a linear chromosome," said team leader Himadri Pakrasi from WUSTL. "Nearly 100 percent of them do not."

    Cyanobacteria are unique among bacteria because they seem part plant-like and part microbe-like. They use the sun's energy to make sugar via photosynthesis like plants do. And like bacteria, Cyanothece 51142 has other key life-sustaining functions, such as doctoring atmospheric nitrogen so other species can use it. This so-called nitrogen fixation is performed by a handful of bacterial species in water and soil. Cyanothece also makes ethanol and hydrogen, activities that drew the attention of the DOE and others looking for new ways to make fuel.

    But unlike most bacteria, Cyanothece has a day-night schedule for performing work. It makes sugar in the daylight, but then spends its nights breaking down that sugar to fix nitrogen and to produce different compounds. And bacteria generally store their DNA in circular chromosomes. Linear chromosomes are generally found in more complex creatures such as plants and animals.
    Oh Cyanothece 51142, I knew one day you'd hike up you're micro-mini skirt and reveal your secrets. You saucy Minx you.

    Reading that gave me flashbacks from Cell Biology class in college....
