Draft Genome Sequence of the Iron-Oxidizing AcidophileLeptospirillum ferriphilum Type Strain DSM 14647
MetadataShow full item record
The genomic features of the Leptospirillum ferriphilum type strain DSM 14647 are described here. An analysis of the predicted genes enriches our knowledge of the molecular basis of iron oxidation, improves our understanding of its role in industrial bioleaching, and suggests how it is adapted to live at extremely low pH.
