Draft Genome Sequence of Microbacterium profundi Shh49T, an Actinobacterium Isolated from Deep-Sea Sediment of a Polymetallic Nodule Environment

Genome Announc. 2015 Jun 11;3(3):e00642-15. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00642-15.


Microbacterium profundi strain Shh49(T) was isolated from deep-sea sediment from a polymetallic nodule area located in the East Pacific Ocean. Strain Shh49(T) contains genes related to the reduction/oxidation of metals. It has potential application in the bioremediation of heavy metal-contaminated environments.
