Draft genome sequence of Deinococcus sp . KR-1, a potential strain for palladium-leaching

J Genomics. 2020 Feb 10;8:21-24. doi: 10.7150/jgen.42020. eCollection 2020.


Strain KR-1 was isolated from pond water collected in Japan. Because this strain was capable of adsorbing palladium particles in sterilized water, strain KR-1 will be a useful biocatalyst for palladium-leaching from metal waste. Here we present a draft genome sequence of Deinococcus sp. KR-1, which consists of a total of 7 contigs containing 4,556,772 bp with a GC content of 70.0% and comprises 4,450 predicted coding sequences. Based on the 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis, strain KR-1 was identified as Deinococcus sp. KR-1.
