Stand Genomic Sci. 2014 Mar 30;9(3):1046-61. doi: 10.4056/sigs.5459590. eCollection 2014 Jun 15.


Strain EB01(T) sp. nov. is the type strain of Bacillus massilioalgeriensis, a new species within the genus Bacillus. This strain, whose genome is described here, was isolated from sediment sample of the hypersaline lake Ezzemoul sabkha in northeastern Algeria. B. massilioalgeriensis is a facultative anaerobic Gram-positive bacillus. Here we describe the features of this organism, together with the complete genome sequence and annotation. The 5,269,577 bp long genome contains 5,098 protein-coding and 95 RNA genes, including 12 rRNA genes.

Keywords: Bacillus massilioalgeriensis; genome; hypersaline environments; sediments; taxono-genomics.
