Draft Genome Sequence of Haloalkaliphilic Exiguobacterium sp. Strain AB2 from Manleluag Ophiolitic Spring, Philippines

Genome Announc. 2014 Aug 14;2(4):e00840-14. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00840-14.


Exiguobacterium sp. AB2 is a haloalkaliphilic bacterium isolated from a hyperalkaline spring in Manleluag, Pangasinan, Philippines. Sequencing of bacterial DNA assembled a 2.85 MB draft genome. Analysis suggests the presence of genes for tolerance to stresses such as elevated pH and salt concentrations and toxic metals.
