Gram-positive isolate collected from downstream of a wastewater treatment plant.
Exiguobacterium sp. KKBO11, isolated near a wastewater treatment plant in Houston, Texas, USA, possesses a large number of genes involved in stress response and transport critical to survival in adverse environmental conditions. An unusually high copy number of RNA genes also possibly contributes to this microorganism’s versatility by promoting nutrient uptake.
