Draft Genome of Halomonas lionensis RHS90 T, a Stress-Tolerant Gammaproteobacterium Isolated from Mediterranean Sea Sediments

Genome Announc. 2017 Jun 8;5(23):e00311-17. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00311-17.


Members of the genus Halomonas are physiologically versatile and harbor ecological adaptations enabling the colonization of contrasted environments. We present here the draft genome of Halomonas lionensis RHS90T, isolated from Mediterranean Sea sediments. Numerous genes related to stress tolerance, DNA repair, or external signal-sensing systems were predicted, which could represent selective advantages of this marine bacterium.
