Complete Genome Sequence of a Hyperthermophilic Archaeon, Thermosphaera sp. Strain 3507, Isolated from a Chilean Hot Spring

Microbiol Resour Announc. 2020 Dec 10;9(50):e01262-20. doi: 10.1128/MRA.01262-20.


A complete genome sequence of a hyperthermophilic archaeon, Thermosphaera sp. strain 3507, which was isolated from a Chilean hot spring, is presented. The genome is 1,305,106 bp with a G+C content of 47.6%. Twenty-seven carbohydrate-active enzyme genes were identified, which is in accordance with the ability of the strain to grow on various polysaccharides.
