Complete genome sequence of Bradymonas sediminis FA350T, the first representative of the order Bradymonadales

Bradymonas sediminis FA350T (=DSM 28820T?=?CICC 10904T) is a Gram-negative, rod-shaped and facultatively anaerobic bacterium isolated from coastal sediments from the Xiaoshi Island, Weihai, China. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed that that strain FA350T belonged to a novel bacterial order in the class Deltaproteobacteria. Then, based on polyphasic taxonomy analyses, a novel order Bradymonadales and a novel family Bradymonadaceae were proposed and validly published. Here, we reported the complete genome of this strain; the genome is 5,045,683?bp in size, has a GC content of 61.1% and contains 3992 predicted genes. Strain FA350T featured being able to prey on bacteria like the members from the order Myxococcales. This is in concordance with the fact that strain FA350T encoded genes affiliated with ABC-transporter, type IV pilus, type II secretion system, toxins and chemotaxis, which are known to play critical roles in bacterial predation. This genome data will provide insights into the bacterial predation pattern of strain FA350T and facilitate the investigation of the mutual interaction between predators and prey. Nucleotide sequence accession number The complete genome sequence of B. sediminis FA350T is available in the NCBI database (accession number CP030032). The strain has been deposited in the Leibniz Institute DSMZ-German Collection of Microorganisms and Cell Culture and China Centre of Industrial Culture Collection (=DSM 28820T?=?CICC 10904T).
