Bottom Line: Here we describe preliminary features of the organism, together with the draft genome sequence and annotation.This is the second genome sequence of a member of the SAR116 clade.The 2,458,945 bp genome contains 2,334 protein-coding and 42 RNA genes.

ABSTRACT
Strain HIMB100 is a planktonic marine bacterium in the class Alphaproteobacteria. This strain is of interest because it is one of the first known isolates from a globally ubiquitous clade of marine bacteria known as SAR116 within the family Rhodospirillaceae. Here we describe preliminary features of the organism, together with the draft genome sequence and annotation. This is the second genome sequence of a member of the SAR116 clade. The 2,458,945 bp genome contains 2,334 protein-coding and 42 RNA genes.

f2: Scanning electron micrograph of strain HIMB100. Scale bar corresponds to 1 μm.

Mentions: Cells of strain HIMB100 are long, thin spiral-shaped rods (0.3 x 1-5 μm) when in exponential growth (Figure 2). Because it is able to grow in media consisting solely of sterile seawater with added inorganic nitrogen and phosphorus in the light or dark, HIMB100 is presumed to grow chemoheterotrophically by oxidizing compounds in the dissolved organic carbon pool of natural seawater. A summary of other known preliminary features is shown in Table 1.
