Query: NC_008702:2230396 Azoarcus sp. BH72, complete genome Lineage: Azoarcus; Azoarcus; Rhodocyclaceae; Rhodocyclales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: This organism is a nitrogen-fixing obligate endophyte first isolated from the roots of Kaller grass in the Punjab region of Pakistan. These organisms are never found in root-free soil and colonize root tissues without causing disease. This strain has been shown to express genes involved in nitrogen fixation in root tissue and is thought to provide significant amounts of nitrogen to its host plant.

General Information: First isolated from sediment contaminated with ethylbenzene, this organism is capable of growing on crude oil, using polar aromatic compounds such as benzoate under both oxic and anoxic conditions. It is currently being evaluated for use in aromatic hydrocarbon bioremediation projects. Aromatic hydrocarbon-degrading bacterium. Capable of metabolizing various aromatic hydrocarbons, including toluene and ethylbenzene and may be of use in bioremediation.
