Complete genome of Martelella sp. AD-3, a moderately halophilic polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons-degrading bacterium

J Biotechnol. 2016 May 10;225:29-30. doi: 10.1016/j.jbiotec.2016.03.014. Epub 2016 Mar 14.


Martelella sp. strain AD-3, a moderate halophilic bacterium, was isolated from a petroleum-contaminated soil with high salinity in China. Here, we report the complete genome of strain AD-3, which contains one circular chromosome and two circular plasmids. An array of genes related to metabolism of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and halophilic mechanism in this bacterium was identified by the whole genome analysis.

Keywords: Biodegradation; Complete genome sequence; Moderate halophilic bacterium; Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons.
