Bacteriovorax marinus is a Gram negative predatory bacterium that parasitises a wide range of other Gram negative bacteria.
The Sanger Institute was funded by the Wellcome Trust to sequence the genome of Bacteriovorax marinus strain SJ in collaboration with Dr. O. Colin Stine of the Department of Epidemiology, University of Maryland, Baltimore, Dr. Henry N. Williams and Dr. Silvia Pineiro of the School of Dentistry, University of Maryland, Baltimore, and Dr. Casonya Johnson of the Department of Biology, Morgan State University, Baltimore.
Published Genome Data
The shotgun data, finished sequences and initial gene prediction with assigned systematic gene identifiers are available for download from our FTP site.
It consists of a chromosome of 3,435,933 bp with a G+C content of 36.75 %, and a plasmid of 1,973 bp with a G+C content of 36.19 %.
The chromosome is deposited in the EMBL/GenBank databases with accession number FQ312005.
The shotgun reads are still available: there are 42,363 reads totalling 29.762 Mb and giving a theoretical coverage of 99.97% of the genome.
Data Use Statement
This sequencing centre plans on publishing the completed and annotated sequences in a peer-reviewed journal as soon as possible. Permission of the principal investigator should be obtained before publishing analyses of the sequence/open reading frames/genes on a chromosome or genome scale. See our data sharing policy.
