Draft Genome Sequence of Williamsia sp. Strain D3, Isolated From the Darwin Mountains, Antarctica

Abstract: Actinobacteria are the dominant taxa in Antarctic desert soils. Here, we describe the first draft genome of a member of the genus Williamsia (strain D3) isolated from Antarctic soil. The genome of this psychrotolerant bacterium may help to elucidate crucial survival mechanisms for organisms inhabiting cold desert soil systems.

“…There are currently no available cyanobacterial genomes from Arctic and Antarctic habitats, although we are aware of two draft genomes of isolates from Antarctic cyanobacterial mats Reddy et al 2013). Such genome data may be crucial in revealing mechanistic insights of polar cyanobacterial isolates as has been done very recently with other phyla Ferreras et al 2014;Guerrero et al 2014;Ronca et al 2015). There is also a general lack of publicly available cyanobacterial virome data, which may lead to poor representation and potential underestimation of cyanophages in Antarctic environments (Zablocki et al 2014).…”

“…Recent draft genomes of Actinobacterial isolates from cold soil environments have provided some new insights into the metabolic adaptation of these bacteria to cold environments [32,33]. Actinobacteria are capable of maintaining metabolic activity and DNA repair processes [34] at low temperatures, critical adaptations to survival in polar soil habitats where the seasonal metabolic window is limited [7] and DNA damage from freeze-thaw, desiccation and associated oxidative processes and radiation damage is all thought to be one of the major impositions on survival [35].…”
