Genome sequence of the thermostable-agarase-producing marine bacterium Catenovulum agarivorans YM01(T), which reveals the presence of a series of agarase-encoding genes.

Abstract

Marine bacterium Catenovulum agarivorans YM01(T) can produce highly thermostable agarases. The draft genome of YM01(T) is about 5.36 Mb and harbors approximately 4,913 genes, including 15 agarase (2 α-agarase and 13 β-agarase)-encoding genes, which will provide references to functional characterization of various agarases from marine bacteria.
