Draft Genome Assembly of Ralstonia pickettii Type Strain K-288 (ATCC 27853)

Genome Announc. 2014 Sep 25;2(5):e00973-14. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00973-14.


We present the genome assembly of Ralstonia pickettii K-288 (ATCC 27511), consisting of 27 contigs placed into a single scaffold. This 4.76-Mbp genome has 64.0% G+C content and 4,425 coding sequences. Because this is the type strain, inclusion of its data set among other Ralstonia genomes should provide a historical genomic perspective.
