Genome Sequence of Lactococcus lactis, a GABA-Producing Strain

What is it about?

Lactococcus lactis subsp. lactis NCDO 2118 is a nondairy lactic acid bacterium, a xylose fermenter, and a gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) producer isolated from frozen peas.

Why is it important?

Here, we report the complete genome sequence of L. lactis NCDO 2118, a strain with probiotic potential activity.
