Genome Announc. 2014 Nov 20;2(6):e00971-14. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00971-14.


Escherichia coli strain K-12 substrain RV308 is an engineered descendant of the K-12 wild-type strain. Like its ancestor, it is an important organism in biotechnological research and is heavily used for the expression of single-chain variable fragments. Here, we report the complete genome sequence of E. coli K-12 RV308 (ATCC 31608).
