Kompetenznetzwerk “Genome Research on Bacteria relevant for Agriculture, Environment and Biotechnology” – the Sorangium genome project

This project exploits the data recently made available by a genome sequencing project of the model strain Sorangium cellulosum funded by the Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF). The genome is “mined” for information relevant to optimizing natural product yields as well as to generating new, biologically active agents using functional genomics approaches. The genomes of additional strains are now also being sequenced and analyzed using various bioinformatic tools.
