Here, we report the complete genome sequence and full methylome analysis of a newly isolated, aerobic, thermophilic, Gram-positive actinomycete, a strain of Thermoactinomyces vulgaris designated strain 2H.Copyright © 2019 Mankai et al.
Azospirillum sp. strains TSA2S and TSH100 are plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria with the capacity to mitigate N2O from agricultural soil. They were isolated from the rhizosphere of paddy soil in Tokyo, Japan. Here, we present the genome sequences of these two strains.Copyright © 2019 Gao et al.
Seven Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica isolates were identified as carrying the mcr-1 gene, by using a real-time fluorescence quantitative PCR method, from a total of 2,558 isolates which were cultured from various food origins in China between 2011 and 2016. Few complete genomes of Salmonella strains harboring the mcr-1 gene have been reported to date, so we report here the complete genome and plasmid sequences of all of these isolates to provide useful references for understanding the prevalence of foodborne Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica isolates carrying mcr-1.Copyright © 2019 Hu et al.
Brevundimonas sp. strain SGAir0440 was isolated from indoor air samples collected in Singapore. Its genome was assembled using single-molecule real-time sequencing data, resulting in one circular chromosome with a length of 3.1 Mbp. The genome consists of 3,033 protein-coding genes, 48 tRNAs, and 6 rRNA operons.Copyright © 2019 Purbojati et al.
We report the complete genome sequence of the anaerobic, sulfonate-respiring, sulfate-reducing bacterium Desulfovibrio desulfuricans IC1. The genome was assembled into a single 3.25-Mb circular chromosome with 2,680 protein-coding genes identified. Sequencing of sulfonate-metabolizing anaerobes is key for understanding sulfonate degradation and its role in the sulfur cycle.Copyright © 2019 Day et al.
Brevibacillus laterosporus can be used as a biocontrol agent for varieties of plants, as it is a pathogen of invertebrates and can also inhibit many bacteria and fungi. Here, we describe the complete genome sequence of B. laterosporus strain Bl-zj, an algicidal bacterium on cyanobacteria isolated from the soil in China.Copyright © 2019 Cai et al.
Here, the complete genome sequence of Duncaniella muris strain B8 is presented. The anaerobic strain was isolated from the feces of C57/BL6 mice and is closely related to D. muris strain DSM 103720, which is the type strain of the recently proposed genus Duncaniella of the Muribaculaceae.Copyright © 2019 Miyake et al.
Staphylococcus aureus ATCC BAA-39 is the reference organism for a multidrug-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) strain that was used to study drug-induced resistance reversion by an iodine-containing nanomolecular complex, FS-1. PacBio sequencing was performed on both the experimental and control strains, followed by genome assembly, variant calling, and DNA modification profiling.Copyright © 2019 Joubert et al.
Kosakonia sp. strain CCTCC M2018092 is a fucose-rich exopolysaccharide producer that was isolated from spring water in Chongqing, Southwest China. In this study, the whole-genome sequence and genetic characteristics of this strain were elucidated. This genome contained 4,789,478 bp, with a G+C content of 56.08% (excluding the plasmid). The genome information in this study will facilitate understanding of the mechanism of high yield of fucose-rich exopolysaccharide produced by Kosakonia sp. CCTCC M2018092.Copyright © 2019 Niu et al.
The bacterial strain SMR4y belongs to the diverse microbiome of the marine diatom Skeletonema marinoi strain R05AC. After assembly of its genome, presented here, and subsequent analyses, we placed it in the genus Sphingorhabdus This strain has a 3,479,724-bp circular chromosome (with 3,340 coding sequences) and no known plasmids.Copyright © 2019 Töpel et al.
We present the whole-genome sequence of an isolate of Auritidibacter ignavus, associated with ear infections. This complete assembly was compared to genomes of four global isolates, which revealed a high diversity within the species.Copyright © 2019 Seth-Smith et al.
Staphylococcus aureus multilocus sequence type 398 (ST398) is responsible for an increasing number of severe infections in humans. There are no reports detailing if all ST398 strains are equally virulent. We present the genome sequence of the moderate-virulence ST398 methicillin-susceptible Staphylococcus aureus strain GD1108, determined in a Caenorhabditis elegans infection model, to reveal the ST398 sublineage virulence.Copyright © 2019 McClure et al.
The emerging livestock-associated Staphylococcus aureus multilocus sequence type 398 (ST398) appears to have augmented virulence in humans. However, it is unclear if all ST398 strains are equally virulent. Here, we present the chromosomal sequence of a low-virulence ST398 methicillin-susceptible S. aureus (MSSA) strain, GD1696, to investigate ST398 sublineage virulence.Copyright © 2019 McClure et al.
Here, we report the complete genome sequence of Kocuria indica CE7, isolated from human skin. This strain possesses a 2,809-kbp chromosome and a 32-kbp plasmid with 2,507 coding sequences. In particular, the genome contains multiple genes potentially involved in adaptations in pH homeostasis and salt tolerance.Copyright © 2019 Lee et al.
In this announcement, we present the complete annotated genome sequence of an Escherichia coli MC4100 mutant strain, BE104. This strain has several methionine sulfoxide reductase gene deletions, making it ideal for studying enzymes that alter the redox state of methionine.Copyright © 2019 Anton et al.
