Paper Title:
Predicting the Metabolic Potential of the Novel Iron Oxidising Bacterium "Ferrovum" sp. JA12 Using Comparative Genomics
  Abstract

Here we describe the potential uptake and assimilation pathways for the essential nutrients C, N, P, and S in the acidophilic iron oxidiser Ferrovum strain JA12, a member of a novel genus among the Betaproteobacteria. Comparative genomics proved to be a powerful approach to give first insights into the biochemical potential of this novel genus and to understand the reasons for the dominating abundance of Ferrovum spp. in a pilot plant to remediate acid mine drainage.
