Project description:The skin commensal yeast Malassezia is associated with several skin disorders. To establish a reference resource, we sought to determine the complete genome sequence of Malassezia sympodialis and identify its protein-coding genes. A novel genome annotation workflow combining RNA sequencing, proteomics, and manual curation was developed to determine gene structures with high accuracy.
Project description:Bacteria belonging to phylum Gemmatimonadetes are found in a wide variety of environments and are particularly abundant in soils. To date, only two Gemmatimonadetes strains have been characterized. Here we report the complete genome sequence and methylation pattern of Gemmatirosa kalamazoonensis KBS708 (ATCC BAA-2150; NCCB 100411), the first characterized Gemmatimondetes strain isolated from soil. Examination of the methylome of Gemmatirosa kalamazoonenis KBS708 using kinetic data from single-molecule, real-time (SMRT) sequencing on the PacBio RS
