Draft Genome Sequence of Amantichitinum ursilacus IGB-41, a New Chitin-Degrading Bacterium

Genome Announc. 2015 Nov 19;3(6):e01309-15. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.01309-15.


Amantichitinum ursilacus IGB-41 is a new species of chitin-degrading bacterium isolated from soil, which secretes potential industrial enzymes. The genome of A. ursilacus was sequenced, and the gene set encoding chitinases was identified. Here, we present the draft genome of 4.9 Mb, comprising 38 contigs, and the corresponding annotation.
