Draft Genome Sequence of Enterobacter sp. AS-1, a Potential Eurytrophic Recombination Host

J Genomics. 2021 Jan 1;9:6-9. doi: 10.7150/jgen.53040. eCollection 2021.


Strain AS-1 was isolated from laboratory-scale activated sludge collected in Japan. This strain not only grows on rich medium, including R2A medium, but also forms colonies on medium lacking organic matter other than agar (water agar), indicating it could be used as a eurytrophic recombinant host in material production processes. Here, we present a draft genome sequence of Enterobacter sp. AS-1, which consists of a total of 24 contigs containing 5,207,146 bp, with a GC content of 55.64%, and comprising 4,921 predicted coding sequences. Based on 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis, strain AS-1 was designated as Enterobacter sp. AS-1.
