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

A polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon-degrading bacterium designated strain Ca6, a member of the family Rhodocyclaceae and a representative of the uncharacterized pyrene group 1 (PG1), was isolated and its genome sequenced. The presence of several genes suspected to be associated with PG1 was confirmed, and additional genes for aromatic compound metabolism were detected. Copyright © 2015 Singleton et al.
