  • We previously demonstrated that 13 bacterial isolates from Lake Erie, when grown in groups of four to five isolates per group, degraded the cyanobacterial toxin microcystin-LR (MC-LR) into nontoxic fragments. Whole-genome sequencing of these bacteria was performed to provide genus and species information and to predict putative MC-LR-degrading genes.
