Complete genome sequence of Klebsiella pneumoniae J1, a protein-based microbial flocculant-producing bacterium

J Biotechnol. 2016 Feb 20:220:90-1. doi: 10.1016/j.jbiotec.2016.01.020. Epub 2016 Jan 19.


Klebsiella pneumoniae J1 is a Gram-negative strain, which belongs to a protein-based microbial flocculant-producing bacterium. However, little genetic information is known about this species. Here we carried out a whole-genome sequence analysis of this strain and report the complete genome sequence of this organism and its genetic basis for carbohydrate metabolism, capsule biosynthesis and transport system.

Keywords: CRISPRs clusters; Complete genome sequence; Klebsiella pneumoniae J1; Microbial flocculant-producing bacterium.
