- The draft genome of Pseudomonas monteilii strain IOFA19 isolated from deep-sea sediment of the Indian Ocean was sequenced to gain insights into its efficient metabolic pathway for degrading formaldehyde. The annotated genome of this strain was subjected to comparative analysis with the genomes of existing sequenced P. monteilii strains QM, SB3101, and SB3078. Differences in the overall genomic content were observed, and relative genes that were hypothetically involved in the formaldehyde-degrading mechanism were identified.
