Draft genome sequence of Microbacterium sp. Strain CH12i, isolated from shallow groundwater in Cape Hallett, Antarctica

06 Feb 2015

The Antarctic continent is largely covered by an expansive ice sheet, but it harbors diverse terrestrial and aquatic habitats in the coastal ice-free continental margins. Here we present the draft genome of Microbacterium sp. CH12i, which was isolated from hypersaline, alkaline, and nutrient-rich groundwater from Cape Hallett, northern Victoria Land, Antarctica.
