Draft Genome Sequence of Phaeobacter leonis Type Strain 306, an Alphaproteobacterium Isolated from Mediterranean Sea Sediments

Genome Announc. 2017 Jun 29;5(26):e00312-17. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00312-17.


Phaeobacter leonis strain 306T is an alphaproteobacterium isolated from Mediterranean Sea sediments. It belongs to the genus Phaeobacter, which was recently proposed and is still poorly characterized. In an effort to better understand the fundamental aspects of the microbiology of this genus, we present here the 4.82-Mb draft genome sequence of Phaeobacter leonis strain 306T.
