Complete genome sequence of the proteorhodopsin-containing marine bacterium Sediminicola sp. YIK13.

Authors: Kwon, Yong Min and Kim, Sang-Jin

Sediminicola sp. YIK13 is a marine flavobacterium, isolated from tidal flat sediment. Here, we present the first complete genome sequence of this genus, which consists of 3,569,807 bp with 39.4% GC content. This strain contains proteorhodopsin, as well as retinal biosynthesis genes, allowing it to utilize sunlight as an energy source. Copyright © 2016 Kwon and Kim.
