Title: Complete genome sequence of Desulfurivibrio alkaliphilus strain AHT2 T, a haloalkaliphilic sulfidogen from Egyptian hypersaline alkaline lakes

Abstract

Desulfurivibrio alkaliphilus strain AHT2 T is a strictly anaerobic sulfidogenic haloalkaliphile isolated from a composite sediment sample of eight hypersaline alkaline lakes in the Wadi al Natrun valley in the Egyptian Libyan Desert. D. alkaliphilus AHT2 T is Gram-negative and belongs to the family Desulfobulbaceae within the Deltaproteobacteria. Here we report its genome sequence, which contains a 3.10 Mbp chromosome. Here, D. alkaliphilus AHT2 T is adapted to survive under highly alkaline and moderately saline conditions and therefore, is relevant to the biotechnology industry and life under extreme conditions. For these reasons, D. alkaliphilus AHT2 T was sequenced by the DOE Joint Genome Institute as part of the Community Science Program.
