General Information: It produces a water-soluble extracellular polysaccharide that forms a biopolymer useful for a wide range of applications to textile printing, oil and adhesive industries. This organism belongs to the Beijerinckiaceae family, which includes both methanotrophic (bacteria able to oxidize methane) and nonmethanotrophic species (like Beijerinckia indica subsp. indica). Sequencing of strains from this family presents an ideal opportunity for a comparative genomic study into the evolution and biochemistry of obligate methanotrophy.
