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.
