Genome Sequence and Methylation Patterns of Halorubrum sp. Strain BOL3-1, the First Haloarchaeon Isolated and Cultured from Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia

Microbiol Resour Announc. 2019 May 9;8(19):e00386-19. doi: 10.1128/MRA.00386-19.


Halorubrum sp. strain BOL3-1 was isolated from Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia, and sequenced using single-molecule real-time sequencing. Its 3.7-Mbp genome was analyzed for gene content and methylation patterns and incorporated into the Haloarchaeal Genomes Database ( The polyextremophilic character and high-elevation environment make the microbe of interest for astrobiology.
