All the genetic potential and the intelligence a bacteria can showcase in a given environment are embedded in its genome. In this study, we have presented systematic guidelines to understand a bacterial genome with the relevant set of in silico tools using a novel bacteria as an example. This study presents a multi-dimensional approach from genome annotation to tracing genes and their network of metabolism operating in an organism. It also shows how the sequence can be used to mine the enzymes and construction of its 3-dimensional structure so that its functional behavior can be predicted and compared. The discriminating algorithm allows analysis of the promoter region and provides the insight in the regulation of genes in spite of the similarity in its sequences. The ecological niche specific bacterial behavior and adapted altered physiology can be understood through the presence of secondary metabolite, antibiotic resistance genes, and viral genes; and it helps in the valorization of genetic information for developing new biological application/ processes. This study provides an in silico work plan and necessary steps for genome analysis of novel bacteria without any rigorous wet lab experiments.
