Project description:Pseudoalteromonas tetraodonis strain kknpp56 is an exopolysaccharide (EPS)-producing marine bacterium that forms potent biofilm. To determine the biosynthesis pathways involved in the EPS production of this bacterium, whole-genome sequencing was performed. The complete genome comes from one chromosome containing 3.72 Mbp of DNA with a G+C content of 41%.
Project description:We present here the complete genome sequences of two newly isolated Pseudoalteromonas tetraodonis and Pseudoalteromonas lipolytica strains, isolated from the gut of the sea cucumber Apostichopus japonicus, to provide a useful means for facilitating the study of antibacterial, bacteriolytic, agarolytic, and algicidal activities of marine Pseudoalteromonas species.
Project description:We report the 4.049-Mbp high-quality draft assembly of the Pseudoalteromonas luteoviolacea strain B (ATCC 29581) genome. This marine species is known to biosynthesize several antimicrobial compounds, including the purple pigment violacein. Whole-genome sequencing and genome mining will complement experimental studies aimed at elucidating novel biosynthetic pathways capable of producing pharmaceutically relevant molecules. Based upon 16S rRNA phylogenetic analysis, we propose that strain ATCC 29581 be classified as a distinct phylogenetic species of the genus Pseudoalteromonas.
