Draft Genome Sequence of the Arsenate-Respiring Bacterium Chrysiogenes arsenatis Strain DSM 11915

Genome Announc. 2013 Nov 14;1(6):e00953-13. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00953-13.


Here we present the draft genome sequence of Chrysiogenes arsenatis strain DSM 11915, only the second genome sequence from the phylum Chrysiogenetes. This strictly anaerobic organism was isolated from arsenic-contaminated gold mine wastewater and respires arsenate or nitrate instead of oxygen. The assembly contains 2,824,977 bp in 22 scaffolds.
