Pseudoalteromonas phenolica is a Gram-negative, rod-shaped, flagellated, aerobic, antibiotic-producing bacterium that was isolated from seawater off Ogasawara Island, Japan. Here, we report the complete genome of P. phenolica KCTC 12086(T) (= O-BC30(T)), which consists of 4,868,993 bp (G+C content of 40.6%) with two chromosomes, 4168 protein-coding genes, 113 tRNAs and 9 rRNA operons. In addition, several genes related to phenolic anti-methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus substances were detected in the genome suggesting that biosynthesis of industrially important polybrominated aromatic compounds could be better understood with the availability of genome data of P. phenolica.
