Complete Genome Sequence of Janibacter melonis M714, a Janus-Faced Bacterium with Both Human Health Impact and Industrial Applications
Janibacter, a member of the Intrasporangiaceae family of Actinobacteria, is a Janus-faced bacterium that has both antibiotic resistance/pathogenicity and the ability to degrade pollutants, with significant research value. Here, we isolated the novel strain Janibacter melonis M714 from an irradiated area in Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, China. J. melonis M714 contains one circular chromosome of 3,426,637 bp with a GC content of 72.98% and one plasmid of 54,436 bp with a GC content of 67.80%. The genome of J. melonis M714 contains 2,859 CDSs, 47 tRNA genes, and 6 rRNA genes. Genome assembly and annotation indicated that strain M714 has a high GC content and contains multiple notable functional genes, including a beta-lactam resistance gene and dioxygenase gene, which may be the key determinants of the strain's antibiotic resistance and xenobiotic degradation ability, respectively. The whole genome sequences of J. melonis M714 provide information that is useful for its potential applications in the degradation of pollutants and environmental remediation.
