Draft Genome Sequence of Halolamina pelagica CDK2 on PacBio RS II
Nucleome Informatics assisted our customer from IARI, New Delhi in publishing the draft genome sequence of Halomina pelagica. We used PacBio RS II to sequence its genome. Halolamina pelagica strain CDK2, a halophilic archaeon (growth range 1.36 to 5.12 M NaCl), was isolated from the rhizosphere of wild grasses of the hypersaline soil of the Rann of Kutch, Gujarat, India. Its draft genome contains 2,972,542 bp and 3,485 coding sequences, depicting genes for halophilic serine proteases and trehalose synthesis.
