Rhodothermaceae bacterium RA is a halo-thermophile isolated from a saline hot spring. Previously, the genome of this bacterium was sequenced using a HiSeq 2500 platform culminating in 91 contigs. In this report, we report on the resequencing of its complete genome using a PacBio RSII platform. The genome has a GC content of 68.3%, is 4,653,222 bp in size, and encodes 3711 genes. We are interested in understanding the carbohydrate metabolic pathway, in particular the lignocellulosic biomass degradation pathway. Strain RA harbors 57 glycosyl hydrolase (GH) genes that are affiliated with 30 families. The bacterium consists of cellulose-acting (GH 3, 5,…
Rhizobium sp. strain 11515TR was isolated from the rhizosphere of to- mato in Laguna, Philippines. The 7.07-Mb complete genome comprises three repli- cons, one chromosome, and two plasmids, with a G?C content of 59.4% and 6,720 protein-coding genes. The genome encodes gene clusters supporting rhizosphere processes, plant symbiosis, and secondary bioactive metabolites.
Streptomyces sp. strain SW4 exhibited broad-spectrum antibacterial activity toward Gram-positive and Gram-negative pathogens. The 7.5-Mb draft genome se- quence gives insight into the complete secondary metabolite production capacity and reveals genes putatively responsible for its antibacterial activity.
Ralstonia solanacearum strain T523 is the major phytopathogen causing tomato bacterial wilt in the Philippines. Here, we report the complete chromosome and draft megaplasmid genomes with predicted gene inventories supporting rhizo- sphere processes, extensive plant virulence effectors, and the production of bioac- tive signaling metabolites, such as ralstonin, micacocidin, and homoserine lactone.
The complete genome sequence of Caulobacter vibrioides strain CB1 consists of a chromosome of 4,137,285 bp, with a GC content of 67.2% and 3,990 coding DNA sequences. This strain contains the typical genome rearrangement that is characteristic of the Caulobacter strains that are currently sequenced. However, this strain is so closely related to sequenced strain NA1000 that rearrangements were minimal. This will allow further clarification of the causes of rearrangements in the species.
Pseudomonas plecoglossicida is a Gram-negative fish pathogen responsi- ble for visceral granular disease in large yellow croaker, Larimichthys crocea. Here, we report the complete genome sequence of a verified virulent strain, XSDHY-P, that was isolated from spleen tissue of a diseased large yellow croaker.
Streptomyces sp. strain AcE210 exhibited antibacterial activity toward Gram-positive microorganisms and turned out to be a rare producer of the special- ized metabolite xanthocidin. The 10.6-Mb draft genome sequence gives insight into the complete specialized metabolite production capacity and builds the basis to find and locate the biosynthetic gene cluster of xanthocidin.
Austwickia chelonae, a species of Actinobacteria, is one of the pathogens that cause dermatophilosis in animals. Here, we report the complete genome se- quence of Austwickia chelonae LK16-18, which was isolated from cutaneous granulo- mas in crocodile lizards.
Here, we report the whole-genome sequence of Sphingomonas sp. strain FARSPH, isolated from an insect cell line as a contaminant. FARSPH shared high identity with Sphingomonas melonis and Sphingomonas aquatilis strains. Due to this finding, we recommend taking this genus into consideration for cell culture quality control.
Here, we report a case of severe infection caused by Escherichia coli that harbored mcr-1, blaNDM-5, and acquired resistance to tigecycline during tigecycline salvage therapy.Antimicrobial susceptibility testing, Southern blot hybridization, and complete genome sequence of the strains were carried out. The genetic characteristics of the mcr-1 and blaNDM-5 plasmids were analyzed. The whole genome sequencing of mcr-1-containing plasmid was completed. Finally, putative single nucleotide polymorphisms and deletion mutations in the tigecycline-resistant strain were predicted.Three E. coli isolates were obtained from ascites, pleural effusion, and stool of a patient; they were resistant to almost all the tested antibiotics. The first two…
