Genome Sequence of Saccharopolyspora erythraea D, a Hyperproducer of Erythromycin

Genome Announc. 2013 Sep 19;1(5):e00718-13. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00718-13.


Saccharopolyspora erythraea is a Gram-positive bacterium that can produce antibiotics. However, this microorganism must often be genetically improved for higher production before it can be used in an industrial setting. Here, we report the whole-genome sequence of the industrial hyperproducer strong mutator Saccharopolyspora erythraea strain D.
