Complete Genome Sequence of a Coastal Cyanobacterium, Synechococcus sp. Strain NIES-970

Genome Announc. 2017 Apr 6;5(14):e00139-17. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00139-17.


Members of the cyanobacterial genus Synechococcus are abundant in marine environments. To better understand the genomic diversity of marine Synechococcus spp., we determined the complete genome sequence of a coastal cyanobacterium, Synechococcus sp. NIES-970. The genome had a size of 3.1 Mb, consisting of one chromosome and four plasmids.
