Complete genome sequence of a bacterium representing a deep uncultivated lineage within the Gammaproteobacteria associated with the degradation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons.

Authors: Singleton, David R and Dickey, Allison N and Scholl, Elizabeth H and Wright, Fred A and Aitken, Michael D

The bacterial strain TR3.2, representing a novel deeply branching lineage within the Gammaproteobacteria, was isolated and its genome sequenced. This isolate is the first cultivated representative of the previously described "Pyrene Group 2" (PG2) and represents a variety of environmental sequences primarily associated with petrochemical contamination and aromatic hydrocarbon degradation.
