Sara Kleindienst, Steven A. Higgins, Despina Tsementzi, Konstantinos T. Konstantinidis, E. Erin Mack, Frank E. Löffler


An anaerobic, dichloromethane-degrading bacterium affiliated with novel Peptococcaceae was maintained in a microbial consortium. The organism originated from pristine freshwater sediment collected from Rio Mameyes in Luquillo, Puerto Rico, in October 2009 (latitude 18°21′43.9″, longitude −65°46′8.4″). The draft genome sequence is 2.1 Mb and has a G+C content of 43.5%.
