Draft genome sequence of a novel actinobacterium from the family Intrasporangiaceae isolated from Signy Island, Antarctica
Actinobacterium strain S63T isolated from a soil sample
collected from Spindrift Col on Signy Island
(South Orkney Islands, maritime Antarctic) is a new
species of the Intrasporangiaceae family. Here we
report a draft genome sequence with an approximate
size of 5 Mbp contained in 54 contigs (69.33% GC
content). Preliminary analysis revealed the presence
of cold active protein coding sequences, which may
indicate an adaptation to the harsh polar environment
from which the strain was isolated.
