[Quiz] identification of bacterial isolates using genome sequence

In this course, you will learn how to identify bacterial isolates using genome sequence. Please read the following materials first.

Now, try to identify the following strains (genome sequences) using the approach described above (take two). Then, discuss the species that you have identified (significance to the humanity or nature). How confident are you for your identification decision?
