Genome Announc. 2013 Jan;1(1):e00052-12. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00052-12. Epub 2013 Jan 31.


Thauera species are members of the betaproteobacteria and are most noted for their ability to metabolize aromatic compounds under anoxic conditions. Here, we announce the draft genome sequences of five Thauera strains in an effort to provide further genetic information as a resource for understanding the ecological function of this environmentally important genus.
