Draft Genome Sequence of Natronolimnobius baerhuensis CGMCC 1.3597T, an Aerobic Haloalkaliphilic Archaeon Isolated from a Soda Lake. Academic Article uri icon


  • The haloalkaliphilic archaeon Natronolimnobius baerhuensis was isolated from a soda lake in Inner Mongolia (China), growing optimally at about 20% NaCl and pH 9.0. The draft genome consists of approximately 3.91 Mb and contains 3,810 predicted genes. Some genes that regulate intracellular osmotic stress and pH homeostasis were identified, providing insight into specific adaptations to this double-extreme environment.
