Abstract

Mucilaginibacter pedocola TBZ30T (= CCTCC AB 2015301T = KCTC 42833T) is a Gram- negative, rod-shaped, non-motile and non-spore-forming bacterium isolated from a heavy metal contaminated paddy field. It shows resistance to multiple heavy metals and can adsorb/remove Zn2+ and Cd2+ during cultivation. In addition, strain TBZ30T produces exopolysaccharides (EPS). These features make it a great potential to bioremediate heavy metal contamination and biotechnical application. Here we describe the genome sequence and annotation of strain TBZ30T. The genome size is 7,035,113 bp, contains 3132 protein-coding genes (2736 with predicted functions), 50 tRNA encoding genes and 14 rRNA encoding genes. Putative heavy metal resistant genes and EPS associated genes are found in the genome.
