Abstract

Strain R6-15 belongs to the genus Thalassolituus, in the family Oceanospirillaceae of Gammaproteobacteria. Representatives of this genus are known to be the obligate hydrocarbonoclastic marine bacteria. Thalassolituus oleivorans R6-15 is of special interest due to its dominance in the crude oil-degrading consortia enriched from the surface seawater of the Arctic Ocean. Here we describe the complete genome sequence and annotation of this strain, together with its phenotypic characteristics. The genome with size of 3,764,053 bp comprises one chromosome without any plasmids, and contains 3,372 protein-coding and 61 RNA genes, including 12 rRNA genes.
