Beijerinckia indica subsp. indica ATCC 9039

Names Beijerinckia indica subsp. indica ATCC 9039
Accession numbers NC_010578, NC_010580, NC_010581
Background Beijerinckia indica subsp. indica (strain ATCC 9039 / DSM 1715 / NCIB 8712) was originally known as Azotobacter indicus. 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 strain 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. (EBI Integr8)
