Genome sequences of two cyanobacterial strains, toxic green Microcystis aeruginosa KW (KCTC 18162P) and nontoxic brown Microcystis sp. strain MC19, under xenic culture conditions.

Bloom-forming cyanobacteria pose concerns for the environment and the health of humans and animals by producing toxins and thus lowering water quality. Here, we report near-complete genome sequences of two Microcystis strains under xenic culture conditions, which were originally isolated from two separate freshwater reservoirs from the Republic of Korea.

Complete genome sequence of Colwellia hornerae PAMC 20917, a cold-active enzyme-producing bacterium isolated from the Arctic Ocean sediment

Psychrophilic bacteria are considered a source of cold-active enzymes that can be used in industrial applications. The Arctic bacterium Colwellia hornerae PAMC 20917 strain has been isolated from the offshore sediment near Ny-Ålesund, Svalbard. The optimal growth temperature of the strain was 10?°C on marine agar. The cell lysate showed alkaline phosphatase activities. Analysis of the enzymatic properties showed that the alkaline phosphatase was cold-active and thermolabile. To explore useful cold-active industrial enzymes further, the entire genome of the PAMC 20917 strain was sequenced. The genome of the strain contained 4,684,314 nucleotides, with 37.87% G+C content. Genome mining analysis revealed…

Complete genome sequence of “Thiodictyon syntrophicum” sp. nov. strain Cad16T, a photolithoautotrophic purple sulfur bacterium isolated from the alpine meromictic Lake Cadagno.

Thiodictyon syntrophicum sp. nov. strain Cad16T is a photoautotrophic purple sulfur bacterium belonging to the family of Chromatiaceae in the class of Gammaproteobacteria. The type strain Cad16T was isolated from the chemocline of the alpine meromictic Lake Cadagno in Switzerland. Strain Cad16T represents a key species within this sulfur-driven bacterial ecosystem with respect to carbon fixation. The 7.74-Mbp genome of strain Cad16T has been sequenced and annotated. It encodes 6237 predicted protein sequences and 59 RNA sequences. Phylogenetic comparison based on 16S rRNA revealed that Thiodictyon elegans strain DSM 232T the most closely related species. Genes involved in sulfur oxidation,…

Complete and assembled genome sequence of an NDM-9- and CTX-M-15-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae ST147 wastewater isolate from Switzerland.

Carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae have emerged worldwide and represent a major threat to human health. Here we report the genome sequence of K. pneumoniae 002SK2, an NDM-9- and CTX-M-15-producing strain isolated from wastewater in Switzerland and belonging to the international high-risk clone sequence type 147 (ST147).Whole-genome sequencing of K. pneumoniae 002SK2 was performed using Pacific Biosciences (PacBio) single-molecule, real-time (SMRT) technology RS2 reads (C4/P6 chemistry). De novo assembly was performed using Canu assembler, and sequences were annotated using the NCBI Prokaryotic Genome Annotation Pipeline (PGAP).The genome of K. pneumoniae 002SK2 consists of a 5.4-Mbp chromosome containing blaSHV-11 and fosA6, a 159-kb…

Probiotic genomes: Sequencing and annotation in the past decade

Probiotics are live microorganisms that confer many health benefits to the host when administered in adequate quantities. These health benefits have garnered much attention towards Probiotics and have given an impetus to their use as dietary supplements for the improvement of general health and as adjuvant therapies for certain diseases. The increased demand for probiotic products in the recent times has provided the thrust for probiotic research applied to several areas of human biology. The advances in genomic technologies have further facilitated the sequencing of the genomes of such probiotic bacteria and their genomic analyses to identify the genes that…

Darwin: A genomics co-processor provides up to 15,000 X acceleration on long read assembly

of life in fundamental ways. Genomics data, however, is far outpacing Moore’s Law. Third-generation sequencing tech- nologies produce 100× longer reads than second generation technologies and reveal a much broader mutation spectrum of disease and evolution. However, these technologies incur prohibitively high computational costs. Over 1,300 CPU hours are required for reference-guided assembly of the human genome (using [47]), and over 15,600 CPU hours are required for de novo assembly [57]. This paper describes “Darwin” — a co-processor for genomic sequence alignment that, without sacrificing sensitivity, provides up to 15,000× speedup over the state-of-the-art software for reference-guided assembly of third-generation…

Complete genome sequence of Celeribacter baekdonensis strain LH4, a thiosulfate-oxidizing alphaproteobacterial isolate from Gulf of Mexico continental slope sediments.

We report here the closed genome sequences of Celeribacter baekdonensis strain LH4 and five unnamed plasmids obtained through PacBio sequencing with 99.99% consensus concordance. The genomes contained several distinctive features not found in other published Celeribacter genomes, including the potential to aerobically degrade styrene and other phenolic compounds.
