Description: Article discussing the draft genome sequence of the cyanide-utilizing bacterium 'Pseudomonas fluorescens' strain NCIMB 11764. Abstract: We report here the 6.97-Mb draft genome sequence of Pseudomonas fluorescens strain NCIMB 11764, which is capable of growth on cyanide as the sole nitrogen source. The draft genome sequence allowed the discovery of several genes implicated in enzymatic cyanide turnover and provided additional information contributing to a better understanding of this organism's unique cyanothropic ability. This is the first sequenced genome of a cyanide-assimilating bacterium.
