Draft Genome Sequences of Two Unclassified Bacteria, Sphingomonas sp. Strains IBVSS1 and IBVSS2, Isolated from Environmental Samples

Genome Announc. 2017 Aug 24;5(34):e00894-17. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00894-17.


We report here the draft genome sequences of Sphingomonas sp. IBVSS1 and IBVSS2, two bacteria assembled from the metagenomes of surface samples from freshwater lakes. The genomes are >99% complete and may represent new species within the Sphingomonas genus, indicating a larger diversity than currently identified.
