NC_014259:3369000 Acinetobacter sp. DR1 chromosome, complete genome
Host Lineage: Acinetobacter oleivorans; Acinetobacter; Moraxellaceae; Pseudomonadales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria
General Information: This strain is capable of degrading paraffin, n-hexadecane, diesel. Acinetobacter sp. DR1 is a diesel degrader Gram-negative bacterium isolated from the soil of rice paddies in Soth Korea. They are found in many different habitats, including soil, water, and sewage, as well as in a variety of foodstuffs. They are also members of the normal microflora of human skin, and have been implicated as a presumed causative or contributory agent of numerous nosocomial (in-hospital) infections, especially those in immunocompromised individuals. Due to their genomic versatility, these bacteria are highly adaptive to treatment with various antibiotic reagents.
