Title: Draft genome sequence of Marinobacterium rhizophilum CL-YJ9 T (DSM 18822 T), isolated from the rhizosphere of the coastal tidal-flat plant Suaeda japonica

The genus Marinobacterium belongs to the family Alteromonadaceae within the class Gammaproteobacteria and was reported in 1997. Currently the genus Marinobacterium contains 16 species. Marinobacterium rhizophilum CL-YJ9 T was isolated from sediment associated with the roots of a plant growing in a tidal flat of Youngjong Island, Korea. The genome of the strain CL-YJ9 T was sequenced through the Genomic Encyclopedia of Type Strains, Phase I: KMG project. Here we report the main features of the draft genome of the strain. The 5,364,574 bp long draft genome consists of 58 scaffolds with 4762 protein-coding and 91 RNA genes. Based on the genomic analyses, the strain seems to adapt to osmotic changes by intracellular production as well as extracellular uptake of compatible solutes, such as ectoine and betaine. In addition, the strain has a number of genes to defense against oxygen stresses such as reactive oxygen species and hypoxia.
