Query: NC_008699:2294361 Nocardioides sp. JS614, complete genome Lineage: Nocardioides; Nocardioides; Nocardioidaceae; Actinomycetales; Actinobacteria; Bacteria General Information: This bacterium grows quickly and efficiently on media containing vinyl chloride and ethene. If starved of vinyl chloride for one day, it will not recover for more than 40 days. This strain was placed in the Nocardioides genus on the basis of 16S rRNA analysis.

General Information: This organism was isolated from creosote-contaminated soil from the Champion International Superfund site in Libby, Montana, USA. This microbe, along with some others collected at this site, is able to rapidly mineralize 14C-labeled pyrene. Phylogenetic studies based on the rRNA 16S gene confirmed that strains collected at this site were distinct from one another and also from other known Mycobacterium isolates.
