Draft Genome Sequence of Cupriavidus sp. Strain SK-4, a di-ortho-Substituted Biphenyl-Utilizing Bacterium Isolated from Polychlorinated Biphenyl-Contaminated Sludge Academic Article uri icon


  • Cupriavidus sp. strain SK-4 is a bacterium capable of growing aerobically on monochlorobiphenyls and dichlorobiphenyls as the sole carbon sources for growth. Here, we report its draft genome sequence with the aim of facilitating an understanding of polychlorinated biphenyl biodegradation mechanisms.
