Draft Genome Sequence of the Actinomycete Rhodococcus sp. Strain AW25M09, Isolated from the Hadsel Fjord, Northern Norway

Genome Announc. 2013 Mar 7;1(2):e0005513. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00055-13.


The cold-adapted Rhodococcus sp. strain AW25M09 was isolated from an Atlantic hagfish caught off the shore of northern Norway as part of an ongoing bioprospecting project that aims to identify novel bacteria with biotechnological potential. Here, we present the 5.8-Mb draft genome sequence, together with details regarding the origin of the strain and its sequence assembly.
