Cupriavidus sp. strain SK-4 is a bacterium capable of growing aerobically on monochlorobiphenyls and dichlorobiphenyls as the sole carbon sources for growth. Here, we report its draft genome sequence with the aim of facilitating an understanding of polychlorinated biphenyl biodegradation mechanisms.
We report here the draft genome sequence of a Bacillus bacterium isolated from the microflora of Nostoc colonies grown at the Andean wetlands in northern Chile. We consider this genome sequence to be a molecular tool for exploring microbial relationships and adaptation strategies to the prevailing extreme conditions at the Atacama Desert.
We report the draft genome sequence of Cupriavidus sp. strain SK-3, which can use 4-chlorobiphenyl and 4-clorobenzoic acid as the sole carbon source for growth. The draft genome sequence allowed the study of the polychlorinated biphenyl degradation mechanism and the recharacterization of the strain SK-3 as a Cupriavidus species.
