Authors: Yu, Wenjun and Li, Huili and Xie, Kebo and Huang, Haiyan and Xie, Huijun and Wang, Shuning

Agrobacterium tumefaciens S33 is capable of growing with nicotine as the sole source of carbon and nitrogen, and has the potential to dispose of tobacco wastes and transform nicotine into functionalized pyridines intermediates, which are important precursors for some valuable drugs and insecticides. Here we report the complete genome sequence of strain S33 and predict the gene cluster involved in nicotine catabolism according to the annotation. Copyright © 2016 Elsevier B.V.
