Desulfovibrio alaskensis G20

Names Desulfovibrio alaskensis G20
Accession numbers NC_007519
Background Desulfovibrio desulfuricans strain G20. This organism is a spontaneous nalidixic acid-resistant derivative of a wild-type strain (G100A) that was isolated from an oil well corrosion site. It has been cured of a 2.3 Kb cryptic plasmid as well. This organism is one of the few extensively studied sulfate-reducing bacteria. (NCBI BioProject: bp_list[1])
