Synonyms

Polynucleobacter necessarius subsp. asymbioticus MWH-K35W1, Polynucleobacter sp. MWH-K35W1, strain MWH-K35W1

The type strain was isolated from a small alkaline lake located in Austria. This strain differes from other Polynucleobacter type strains due to its origin from a deep anoxic water layer. The genome sequence of the strain was fully determined.,[3][4] The type strain dwells as a free-living, planktonic bacterium in the water column of the lake, thus is part of freshwater bacterioplankton.
