Completed genome sequence of the anaerobic iron-oxidizing bacterium Acidovorax ebreus strain TPSY

J Bacteriol. 2010 Mar;192(5):1475-6. doi: 10.1128/JB.01449-09. Epub 2009 Dec 18.


Acidovorax ebreus strain TPSY is the first anaerobic nitrate-dependent Fe(II) oxidizer for which there is a completed genome sequence. Preliminary protein annotation revealed an organism optimized for survival in a complex environmental system. Here, we briefly report the completed and annotated genome sequence of strain TPSY.
