Acinetobacter sp. strain TTH0-4 was isolated from a permafrost region in Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. With its capability to degrade crude oil at low temperature, 10°C, the strain could be an excellent candidate for the bioremediation of crude oil pollution in cold areas or at cold seasons. We sequenced and annotated the whole genome to serve as a basis for further elucidation of the genetic background of this promising strain, and provide opportunities for investigating the metabolic and regulatory mechanisms and optimizing the biodegradative activity in cold environment.
