We report the 7.85-Mb genome sequence of Burkholderia sp. strain SJ98, isolated from agricultural fields of Assam, India. The draft genome of this strain will be helpful in studying the genetic pathways involved in the degradation of aromatic compounds.
The genome of Burkholderia sp. SJ98 was sequenced by one standard (single end) and one paired end run of 454 GS FLX (Roche) technology. A total of high quality 739,460 single end reads and 539,992 paired reads of 8Kb insert library were obtained. All the data have 64.4X coverage of the Burkholderia sp. SJ98 genome.
Rochs 454 reads were assembled into 17 scaffolds of size 7.89Mb (with 0.74% of Ns) and 79 large contigs of size 7.85Mb by Newbler 2.5.3 assembler. N 50 length of scaffolds and contigs were 1.32Mb and 464.6Kb respectively.
Genome annotation was done by RAST server
and RNAmmer 1.2
