Authors: Kim, So-Jeong and Do, Kyoung-Tag and Park, Soo-Je

Halomonas aestuarii Hb3, a moderately halophilic bacterium belonging to the class Gammaproteobacteria, was isolated from a tidal flat. Herein, we report the complete genome sequence of its strain Hb3. Its size is estimated at 3.54Mbp with a mean G+C content of 67.9%. The genome includes 3238 open reading frames, 65 transfer RNAs, and four ribosomal RNA gene operons. Genes related to the degradation of monoaromatic compounds, detoxification of arsenic, and production of polymers were identified. These features indicate that this strain may be important for ecological and industrial application.
