Bottom Line: The family Hyphomonadaceae within the Alphaproteobacteria is largely comprised of bacteria isolated from marine environments with striking morphologies and an unusual mode of cell growth.Here, we report the complete genome sequence Hirschia baltica, which is only the second a member of the Hyphomonadaceae with a published genome sequence.The 3,455,622 bp long chromosome and 84,492 bp plasmid with a total of 3,222 protein-coding and 44 RNA genes were sequenced as part of the DOE Joint Genome Institute Program CSP 2008.

ABSTRACT
The family Hyphomonadaceae within the Alphaproteobacteria is largely comprised of bacteria isolated from marine environments with striking morphologies and an unusual mode of cell growth. Here, we report the complete genome sequence Hirschia baltica, which is only the second a member of the Hyphomonadaceae with a published genome sequence. H. baltica is of special interest because it has a dimorphic life cycle and is a stalked, budding bacterium. The 3,455,622 bp long chromosome and 84,492 bp plasmid with a total of 3,222 protein-coding and 44 RNA genes were sequenced as part of the DOE Joint Genome Institute Program CSP 2008.

Mentions: Cells of H. baltica strain IFAM 1418T are rod-shaped, elliptical or ovoid with 0.5 – 1.0 by 0.5 – 6.0 µm in size (without hyphae which have a diameter of about 0.2 µm) (Figure 2) [2]. IFAM 1418T cells stain Gram-negative, are motile and strictly aerobic [2]. 1 to 2 hyphae are located polarly and flagellation is monotrichous polar [2]. Cells grow best in artificial sea water with a broad range of NaCl concentrations (Table 1). The strain grows on a broad spectrum of organic compounds as carbon source such as amino acids, organic acids and sugars (Table 1), but not on C1 compounds [2]. In contrast to its phylogenetic neighbors H. baltica strains do not store PHB [2]. Colonies of strain IFAM 1418T show a yellow pigmentation whereas strain IFAM 1408 colonies are white [2].
