Study Detail

TitleMicrobacterium laevaniformans (Actinobacteria) strain OR221, a bacterium tolerant to metals, nitrate and low pH
Study TypeWhole Genome Sequencing
Abstract Microbacterium laevaniformans strain OR221 was isolated from subsurface sediments obtained from the Field Research Center (FRC) in Oak Ridge, TN. It was characterized as a bacterium tolerant to heavy metals such as uranium, nickel, cobalt, cadmium, as well as nitrate and low pH.
Description Draft genome data for strain OR221 was generated using an Illumina (1) HiSeq2000 next-generation DNA sequencer derived from a 500 bp paired-end library.
