Pseudomonas monteilii SB3078 and SB3101 are benzene-, toluene-, and ethylbenzene-degrading strains used for bioaugmentation in relation to treatment of wastewater contaminated with petrochemical hydrocarbons. Complete genome sequencing of the bioaugmentation strains confirms that they are very closely related (100.0% average nucleotide identity). Both strains contain extensive integration of phage elements, with the main difference being insertion of additional phage elements in the SB3078 genome.
