Bottom Line: C. halotolerans, isolated from a saline soil, belongs to the non-lipophilic, non-pathogenic corynebacteria.It displays a high tolerance to salts (up to 25%) and is related to the pathogenic corynebacteria C. freneyi and C. xerosis.As this is a type strain in a subgroup of Corynebacterium without complete genome sequences, this project describing the 3.14 Mbp long chromosome and the 86.2 kbp plasmid pCha1 with their 2,865 protein-coding and 65 RNA genes will aid the Genomic Encyclopedia ofBacteria andArchaea project.

ABSTRACT
Corynebacterium halotolerans Chen et al. 2004 is a member of the genus Corynebacterium which contains Gram-positive bacteria with a high G+C content. C. halotolerans, isolated from a saline soil, belongs to the non-lipophilic, non-pathogenic corynebacteria. It displays a high tolerance to salts (up to 25%) and is related to the pathogenic corynebacteria C. freneyi and C. xerosis. As this is a type strain in a subgroup of Corynebacterium without complete genome sequences, this project describing the 3.14 Mbp long chromosome and the 86.2 kbp plasmid pCha1 with their 2,865 protein-coding and 65 RNA genes will aid the Genomic Encyclopedia ofBacteria andArchaea project.

Mentions: The genome includes one plasmid, for a total size of 3,222,008 bp, with one circular chromosome of 3,135,752 bp (68.44% G+C content) and one plasmid of 86,256 bp (63.20% G+C content) [Figure 3 and Figure 4]. For the main chromosome, 2,856 genes were predicted, 2,791 of which are protein-coding genes. 1,632 (57%) of the protein-coding genes were assigned to a putative function with the remaining annotated as hypothetical proteins. 1,914 protein coding genes belong to 396 paralogous families in this genome corresponding to a gene content redundancy of 66.8%. The properties and the statistics of the genome are summarized in Table 3, Tables 4 and 5.
