Genome Sequence of Pandoraea sp. ISTKB, a Lignin-Degrading Betaproteobacterium, Isolated from Rhizospheric Soil

Genome Announc. 2016 Nov 3;4(6):e01240-16. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.01240-16.


We report here the genome sequence of Pandoraea sp. ISTKB, a betaproteobacterium isolated from rhizospheric soil in the backwaters of Alappuzha, Kerala, India. The strain is alkalotolerant and grows on medium containing lignin as a sole carbon source. Genes and pathways related to lignin degradation were complemented by genomic analysis.
