Metagenome-Assembled Genome Sequences of a Biofilm Derived from Marsberg Copper Mine

Microbiol Resour Announc. 2021 Jan 14;10(2):e01253-20. doi: 10.1128/MRA.01253-20.


We sequenced the metagenome of a biofilm collected near a leachate stream of the Marsberg copper mine (Germany) and reconstructed eight metagenome-assembled genomes. These genomes yield copper resistance through Cu(I) oxidation via multiple copper oxidases and extrusion through copper-exporting P-type ATPases.
