Complete genome sequence of Frondihabitans sp. strain PAMC28766, a novel carotenoid-producing and radiation-resistant strain isolated from an Antarctic lichen.

Authors: Han, So-Ra and Yu, Sang-Cheol and Kang, Seunghyun and Park, Hyun and Oh, Tae-Jin

Here, we report the first complete genome sequence of Frondihabitans sp. strain PAMC28766, which was found to consist of three plasmids, one chromosome (4,345,897bp), and a series of genes involved in carotenoid biosynthesis and nucleotide excision repair. An analysis of the Frondihabitans sp. PAMC28766 genome will improve our understanding of the carotenoid biosynthesis pathway. Furthermore, the sequence data will provide novel insight into UV radiation-resistance in extremely cold environments. Copyright © 2016 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
