Complete Genome Sequences of Azotobacter vinelandii Wild-Type Strain CA and Tungsten-Tolerant Mutant Strain CA6.

Author information

We report the complete genome sequences of Azotobacter vinelandii mutant strain CA6 and its parent wild-type strain, CA. When fixing nitrogen, strain CA6 displays slow growth and impaired molybdate uptake, tolerance to tungstates, and production of hydrogen gas, compared to results for strain CA. Comparing these genome sequences may provide a genetic basis for these mutant phenotypes.
