Meyer JL, Dillard BA, Rodgers JM, Ritchie KB, Paul VJ, Teplitski M - Stand Genomic Sci (2015)

Bottom Line: Members of the gammaproteobacterial genus Halomonas are common in marine environments.This strain was chosen for genome sequencing to provide insight into the role of commensal heterotrophic bacteria in the coral holobiont.The draft genome consists of 290 scaffolds, totaling 3.5 Mbp in length and contains 3397 protein-coding genes.

ABSTRACT
Members of the gammaproteobacterial genus Halomonas are common in marine environments. Halomonas and other members of the Oceanospirillales have recently been identified as prominent members of the surface microbiota of reef-building corals. Halomonas meridiana strain R1t3 was isolated from the surface mucus layer of the scleractinian coral Acropora palmata in 2005 from the Florida Keys. This strain was chosen for genome sequencing to provide insight into the role of commensal heterotrophic bacteria in the coral holobiont. The draft genome consists of 290 scaffolds, totaling 3.5 Mbp in length and contains 3397 protein-coding genes.

Mentions: Cells of strain R1t3 are around 2 μm long and 1 μm wide (Fig. 3). Cells are motile and multi-flagellated, although the exact number of flagella per cell could not be determined. Colonies grown on marine agar plates are smooth, round, and beige.Fig. 3
