Arthrobacter strain A3, a psychotrophic bacterium isolated from the Tian Shan Mountain of China, can degrade the cellulose and synthesis the long-chain hydrocarbons efficiently in low temperature. Here we report the complete genome sequence of this bacterium. The complete genome sequence of Arthrobacter strain A3, consisting of a cycle chromosome with a size of 4.26 Mbp and a cycle plasmid with a size of 194kbp. In this genome, a hydrocarbon biosynthesis gene cluster (oleA, oleB/oleC and oleD) was identified. To resistant the extreme environment, this strain contains a unique mycothiol-biosynthetic pathway (mshA-D), which has not been found in other Arthrobacter species before. The availability of this genome sequence allows us to investigate the genetic basis of adaptation to growth in a nutrient-poor permafrost environment and to evaluate of the biofuel-synthetic potential of this species.
