Genome sequence of Desulfurella amilsii strain TR1 and comparative genomics of Desulfurellaceae family

  • Frontiers in Microbiology, 8(222), 2017

Publisher: Frontiers Media S.A.


The acidotolerant sulfur reducer Desulfurella amilsii was isolated from sediments of Tinto river, an extremely acidic environment. Its ability to grow in a broad range of pH and to tolerate certain heavy metals offers potential for metal recovery processes. Here we report its high-quality draft genome sequence and compare it to the available genome sequences of other members of Desulfurellaceae family: D. acetivorans, D. multipotens, Hippea maritima, H. alviniae, H. medeae and H. jasoniae. For most species, pairwise comparisons for average nucleotide identity (ANI) and in silico DNA-DNA hybrid ...
