Microbiol Resour Announc. 2020 Mar 26;9(13):e00176-20. doi: 10.1128/MRA.00176-20.


Here, we present the draft genome sequence of Verrucosispora sp. strain CWR15, a bacterial symbiont of a Gulf of Mexico sponge. The genome consists of 35 contigs encoding 5,840 genes. The genome is the basis for future study and presents an underexplored taxonomy and biosynthetic potential.
