Complete genome sequence of Dehalobacterium formicoaceticum strain DMC, a strictly anaerobic dichloromethane-degrading bacterium.

Authors: Chen, Gao and Murdoch, Robert W and Mack, E Erin and Seger, Edward S and Löffler, Frank E

Dehalobacterium formicoaceticum utilizes dichloromethane as the sole energy source in defined anoxic bicarbonate-buffered mineral salt medium. The products are formate, acetate, inorganic chloride, and biomass. The bacterium's genome was sequenced using PacBio, assembled, and annotated. The complete genome consists of one 3.77-Mb circular chromosome harboring 3,935 predicted protein-encoding genes. Copyright © 2017 Chen et al.
