L. neut. adj. marinum, marine
Nomenclatural type
NCBI Assembly: GCA_000024465.1
Reference strain
IMCC 1322
Nomenclatural status
Validly published under the SeqCode


The description is the same as given by Oh et al., 2010:
"“Candidatus Puniceispirillum marinum” IMCC1322 is expected to be a metabolic generalist carrying functional genes for utilizing resourceful sunlight, DMSP, CO, and C1 compounds in the surface ocean. Such metabolic potential of strain IMCC1322, the first cultured representative of the SAR116 clade, might reflect ecological niches for even more dominant marine bacterioplankton clades SAR11, Roseobacter, and SAR86."

Submitter comments
The information about genome coverage was received from the original authors via personal communication (see below). From: s-jkim@kordi.re.kr, Hyun-Myung Oh

Accoding to Dr. Kwon at kiost (kkkwon@kiost.ac.kr) abi 3730 xl sequencing coverage was 2x from 4,512-clone genomic library and the additional pyrosequencing runs were done 3 times.
I could not get raw reads from pyrosequencing, I expect not more that 100k reads per 454 run.
Since Macrogen reported tens of thounsand reads per 454 run, and they did it three times to get more than 40 phred score, the following calculation would make sense ! 
100k * 3 run * 400 bp / 2.7 Mbp = 44.44 x
So our final decision on the genomic coverage of the completeted genome of IMCC1322 should be 46 folds.
