First complete genome sequence of Marinilactibacillus piezotolerans strain 15R, a marine lactobacillus isolated from coal-bearing sediment 2.0 kilometers below the seafloor, determined by PacBio single-molecule real-time technology.
Marinilactibacillus piezotolerans strain 15R is a facultatively anaerobic heterotrophic lactobacillus isolated from deep marine subsurface sediment nearly 2 km below the seafloor in the northwestern Pacific. We report here the first whole-genome sequence of strain 15R. The identified genome sequence has 2,767,908 bp, 35.4% G+C content, and predicted 2,552 candidate protein-coding sequences, with no identified plasmids. Copyright © 2017 Wei et al.
