© 2016 Hwang et al. Alkaliphilus metalliredigens strain QYMF is an anaerobic, alkaliphilic, and metal-reducing bacterium associated with phylum Firmicutes. QYMF was isolated from alkaline borax leachate ponds. The genome sequence will help elucidate the role of metalreducing microorganisms under alkaline environments, a capability that is not commonly observed in metal respiringmicroorganisms.
