Cyanide is a potent poison that can be found naturally in some environments, and released as a waste in human activities. Cyanide waste is indeed a public health and an environmental concern. Its removal is an important issue, which has been addressed by chemical-physical methods or by alternatives such as bioremediation, which utilize organisms that can degrade cyanide. Pseudomonas fluorescens NCIMB11764 (Pf11764) bacterium is capable of utilize cyanide as its sole nitrogen source. However, the complete pathways involved in its metabolism are unclear. Therefore, to learn more about the unique genetic features of Pf11764, we characterized the bacterium's genome using next-generation sequencing technology. Our main objectives were to characterize and identify the genes involved in cyanide degradation and to study potential resistance pathways present in this genome.
