Complete Genome Sequence of Strain BW-2, a Magnetotactic Gammaproteobacterium in the Family Ectothiorhodospiraceae , Isolated from a Brackish Spring in Death Valley, California

Abstract : We report the complete 4.1-Mb genome sequence of strain BW-2, a magnetotactic, sulfur-oxidizing rod, belonging to the family Ectothiorhodospiraceae of the class Gammaproteobacteria, that biomineralizes membrane-bounded magne-tite nanocrystals in its magnetosomes. This genome sequence, in comparison with those of other magnetotactic bacteria, is essential for understanding the origin and evolution of magnetotaxis and magnetosome biomineralization.
