Abstract

Here, we present the complete genome sequence of Azoarcus sp. strain DN11, a denitrifying bacterium capable of anaerobic benzene degradation. The DN11 genome is 4,956,835 bp long with a GC content of 66.3%. Genome analysis suggested the possibility that DN11 utilizes three proposed pathways for anaerobic benzene degradation, namely, methylation, hydroxylation, and carboxylation pathways.
