Fernando Puente-Sánchez, Carlos González-Silva, Victor Parro, Javier Tamames, Armando Azua-Bustos. 2018. Draft Genome Sequence of the Extremely Desiccation-Tolerant Cyanobacterium Gloeocapsopsis sp. Strain AAB1. Microbiology Resource Announcements 6, 17, DOI: 10.1128/genomeA.00216-18
Gloeocapsopsis sp. strain AAB1 is an extremely desiccation- tolerant cyanobacterium isolated from translucent quartz stones from the Atacama Desert (Chile). Here, we report its draft genome sequence, which consists of 137 contigs with an similar to 5.4-Mb genome size. The annotation revealed 5,641 coding DNA sequences, 38 tRNA genes, and 5 rRNA genes.
