Permanent draft genome of 'Rhodopirellula islandica' strain K833.
MetadataShow full item record
The planctomycete strain K833 was isolated from cold waters at the coast of Island and is tentatively named 'Rhodopirellula islandica'. It has a lower temperature range for growth than other genome-sequenced Rhodopirellula strains affiliating to Rhodopirellula baltica and 'Rhodopirellula europaea'. The permanent draft genome of strain K833 was obtained as part of a larger study on the biogeography of Rhodopirellula species in European marine waters. The genome consists of 55 contigs with a genome size of 7,433,200 bp. With an average nucleotide identity of 81% to related genomes of R. baltica and 'R. europaea' and more than 4000 common genes, it will be a valuable source for the study of temperature adaptation of planctomycete genomes.
