Complete genome sequence of the diesel-degrading Acinetobacter sp. strain DR1

J Bacteriol. 2010 Sep;192(18):4794-5. doi: 10.1128/JB.00722-10. Epub 2010 Jul 16.


The genus Acinetobacter is ubiquitous in soil, aquatic, and sediment environments and includes pathogenic strains, such as A. baumannii. Many Acinetobacter species isolated from various environments have biotechnological potential since they are capable of degrading a variety of pollutants. Acinetobacter sp. strain DR1 has been identified as a diesel degrader. Here we report the complete genome sequence of Acinetobacter sp. DR1 isolated from the soil of a rice paddy.
