The location the soil sample was taken from a vegetable farm at 3217 Spring Cypress Rd, Cypress TX 77388. An 8-12 inch deep was dug at this location and about 10g sample was taken. It was stored in a container that protected the sample from UV sunlight. In addition the surrounding temperature was kept at room temperature.
Achromobacter xylosoxidansADAF13, isolated from farmland soil, possesses a large number of putative degradation genes and pathways that break down a wide variety of aromatic hydrocarbons, pesticides, endocrine disruptors, and other high-impact xenobiotics. These properties make this strain an excellent candidate for further development as a broad-spectrum bioremediation agent.
