Francisella

 [fran″sĭ-sel´ah]
a genus of gram-negative, aerobic, coccoid or rod-shaped bacteria; F. tularen´sis (formerly called Pasteurella tularensis) is the etiologic agent of tularemia.

Francisella

(fran-si-sel'lă),
A genus of nonmotile, non-spore-forming, aerobic bacteria that contain small, gram-negative cocci and rods. Capsules are rarely produced and the cells may show bipolar staining. These organisms are highly pleomorphic; they do not grow on plain agar or in liquid media without special enrichment; they are pathogenic and cause tularemia in humans. The type species is Francisella tularensis.

Now scientists at the Division of Infectious Diseases of the Emory University School of Medicine and the Emory Vaccine Center have shown that Francisella novicida, a close relative of the bacterium that causes tularemia, and another bacterium that causes meningitis, need parts of the CRISPR system to stay infectious.
