Draft Genome Sequences of Two Chemosynthetic Arcobacter Strains Isolated from Hydraulically Fractured Wells in Marcellus and Utica Shales.

Academic Article


  • Genome sequences were obtained for two isolates of the genus Arcobacter from saline fluids produced from hydraulically fractured shale gas wells in the Marcellus and Utica formations. These genomes provide insight into microbial sulfur cycles occurring in a high-salt deep terrestrial shale environment.
