The phosphite assimilating bacterium, P. glucosidilyticus DD6b, was isolated from the gut of the zooplankton Daphnia magna. Its 3,872,381 bp high-quality draft genome is arranged into 93 contigs containing 3311 predicted protein-coding and 41 RNA-encoding genes. This genome report presents the specific properties and common features of P. glucosidilyticus DD6b genome in comparison with the genomes of P. glucosidilyticus type strain DSM 23,534, and another five Pedobacter type strains with publicly available completely sequenced genomes. Here, we present the first journal report on P. glucosidilyticus genome sequence and provide information on a new specific physiological determinant of P. glucosidilyticus species.
Keywords: Pedobacter glucosidilyticus; Phosphite assimilation; Sphingobacteriia.
