Here, we reported a high-quality complete genome sequence of a xanthan-degrading bacterium Microbacterium sp. XT11, newly isolated from garden soil, China. Several genes probably involved in xanthan degradation pathway were detected as a gene cluster in the genome. The genome information of strain XT11 will be valuable for clarifying the molecular mechanism for xanthan degradation and producing xantho-oligosaccharides.
Keywords: Genome; Microbacterium sp. XT11; Xanthan-degrading; Xantho-oligosaccharides.
