Pseudomonas sp. VLB120 complete genome

What is it about?

Pseudomonas is a diverse group of bacteria. Pseudomonas sp. VLB120 is of interest for applications in biotechnology. Based on the complete total DNA sequence, more than 5000 genes have been predicted, and information of the DNA sequence and predicted genes has been made available in public scientific databases. The genome comprises a huge chromosome of plus a much smaller plasmid.

Why is it important?

Information related to the DNA sequence and genes of Pseudomonas sp. VLB120 may help researchers to enhance its use for biotechnological production.
