Background

Azotobacter chroococcum NCIMB 8003 (ATCC 4412) is a free-living member of the gamma-proteobacteria used in studies of nitrogen fixation and hydrogen metabolism. This strain contains six plasmids.

We have sequenced the genome of this strain and this site contains links to that data as well as supplemental data and figures.
