Draft genome sequence of Hymenobacter sp. strain IS2118, isolated from a freshwater lake in Schirmacher Oasis, Antarctica, reveals diverse genes for adaptation to cold ecosystems

Academic Article

Abstract

  • © 2014 Koo et al. Hymenobacter sp. IS2118, isolated from a freshwater lake in Schirmacher Oasis, Antarctica, produces extracellular polymeric substance (EPS) and manifests tolerance to cold, UV radiation (UVR), and oxidative stress. We report the 5.26-Mb draft genome of strain IS2118, which will help us to understand its adaptation and survival mechanisms in Antarctic extreme ecosystems.
