Genome Sequence of Janthinobacterium sp. CG23_2, a Violacein-Producing Isolate from an Antarctic Supraglacial Stream

Genome Announc. 2016 Jan 28;4(1):e01468-15. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.01468-15.


Here, we present the draft genome sequence for the violacein-producing Janthinobacterium sp. CG23_2 isolated from an Antarctic supraglacial stream. The genome is ~7.85 Mb, with a G+C content of 63.5%. The genome includes 7,247 candidate protein coding genes, which may provide insight into UV tolerance mechanisms.
