Authors: Liu, Lu-Ning and Faulkner, Matthew and Liu, Xuan and Huang, Fang and Darby, Alistair C and Hall, Neil

Blastochloris viridis is a unique anaerobic, phototrophic purple bacterium that produces bacteriochlorophyll b. Here we report an improved genome sequence of Blastochloris viridis DSM133, which is instrumental to the studies of photosynthesis, metabolic versatility, and genetic engineering of this microorganism.
