Here, we describe a novel bacterium, strain TUD-YJ37(T), which can accumulate polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB) to more than 85 % (w/w) dry cell weight. The bacterium was isolated from a mixed-culture bioreactor by using a feast-famine regime and its properties were characterized. Phylogenetic analysis based on full 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed that the isolate… CONTINUE READING
