Draft genome sequence of Rubrivivax gelatinosus CBS

J Bacteriol. 2012 Jun;194(12):3262. doi: 10.1128/JB.00515-12.


Rubrivivax gelatinosus CBS, a purple nonsulfur photosynthetic bacterium, can grow photosynthetically using CO and N(2) as the sole carbon and nitrogen nutrients, respectively. R. gelatinosus CBS is of particular interest due to its ability to metabolize CO and yield H(2). We present the 5-Mb draft genome sequence of R. gelatinosus CBS with the goal of providing genetic insight into the metabolic properties of this bacterium.
