- Here we report the draft genome of Marinobacter manganoxydans MnI7-9, isolated from a deep-sea hydrothermal vent in the Indian Ocean and capable of oxidizing manganese even when there is a very high concentration of Mn2+. The strain also displayed high resistance and adsorption ability toward many metal(loid)s.
