Draft Genome Sequence of Rhodococcus aetherivorans JCM 14343T, a Bacterium Capable of Degrading Recalcitrant Noncyclic and Cyclic Ethers

Microbiol Resour Announc. 2020 Jan 16;9(3):e01345-19. doi: 10.1128/MRA.01345-19.


Here, we report the draft genome sequence of Rhodococcus aetherivorans JCM 14343T, which possesses the versatile ability to degrade recalcitrant noncyclic and cyclic ether compounds. The 4.2-Mbp genome of this bacterium contains alkane hydroxylase and propane monooxygenase genes involved in the degradation of noncyclic and cyclic ethers, respectively.
