Bacillus subtilis

Model organism for prokaryotic cell differentiation and development

Lineage: Bacteria[6716]; Firmicutes[1250]; Bacilli[637]; Bacillales[373]; Bacillaceae[170]; Bacillus[88]; Bacillus subtilis group[8]; Bacillus subtilis[1]
Bacillus subtilis. This organism was one of the first bacteria studied, and was named Vibrio subtilis in 1835 and renamed Bacillus subtilis in 1872. It is one of the most well characterized bacterial organisms, and is a model system for cell differentiation and development. This soil bacterium can divide asymmetrically, producing More...
