Abstract

We report the whole-genome sequence of Gordonia sp. strain YY1, which was isolated from the surface soil in an explosive-contaminated site in Israel and cultivated with hexahydro-1,3,5-trinitro-1,3,5-triazine, i.e., royal demolition explosive (RDX), as a nitrogen source. This genome sequence will improve our understanding of the genes for RDX degradation. In addition, this research will reveal metabolic pathways in order to develop new bioremediation methods for polluted soil and groundwater.
