Complete Genome Sequence of Curtobacterium sp. Strain MR_MD2014, Isolated from Topsoil in Woods Hole, Massachusetts


Here, we present the 3,443,800-bp complete genome sequence of Curtobacterium sp. strain MR_MD2014 (phylum Actinobacteria). This strain was isolated from soil in Woods Hole, MA, as part of the 2014 Microbial Diversity Summer Program at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, MA.

The isolation and culturing of this organism were carried out as part of the 2014 Microbial Diversity Summer Program at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, MA. The course was supported by generous grants from the Simons Foundation (grant 309981 to the Marine Biological Laboratory), the Beckman Foundation, and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. This material is based upon work supported by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (grant NNA13AA92A), the National Science Foundation (grant MCB-1417876), and the U.S. Department of Energy (grant DE-FG02-85ER13361). R.M.M. was supported by a fellowship from Alabama EPSCoR GRSP, Auburn University's Cell and Molecular Biosciences (CMB) Summer Fellowship, Selman A. Waksman Endowed Scholarship in Microbial Diversity, the Bernard Davis Endowed Scholarship (grant 47802012050), the Auburn Graduate School Travel Award, and the Joseph Kirby Farrington Endowed Fund for Excellence. These funders had no role in the study design, data collection and interpretation, or the decision to submit the work for publication. Promega Corporation donated the molecular reagents used in this project. The sequencing for this organism was supported and carried out by Pacific Biosciences.
