Genome our website properties The genome consists of a 3,498,530 bp long chromosome with a G+C content of 69.8% (Table 3 and Figure 3). Of the 3,367 genes predicted, 3,301 were protein-coding genes, and 66 RNAs; 37 pseudogenes were also identified. The majority of the protein-coding genes (70.3%) were assigned with a putative function while the remaining ones were annotated as hypothetical proteins. The distribution of genes into COGs functional categories is presented in Table 4. Table 3 Genome Statistics Figure 3 Graphical circular map of the chromosome. From outside to the center: Genes on forward strand (color by COG categories), Genes on reverse strand (color by COG categories), RNA genes (tRNAs green, rRNAs red, other RNAs black), GC content, GC skew.

A representative genomic 16S rRNA sequence of C.
algicola was compared using NCBI BLAST under default settings (e.g., considering only the high-scoring segment pairs (HSPs) from the best 250 hits) with the most recent release of the Greengenes database  and the relative frequencies, weighted by BLAST scores, of taxa and keywords (reduced to their stem ) were determined. The five most frequent genera were Cellulophaga (39.5%), Maribacter (7.8%), Flavobacterium (5.6%), Cytophaga (5.4%) and Formosa (4.7%) (135 hits in total). Regarding the 21 hits to sequences from members of the species, the average identity within HSPs was 95.8%, whereas the average coverage by HSPs was 94.9%. Regarding the 16 hits to sequences from other members of the genus, the average identity within HSPs was 94.7%, whereas the average coverage by HSPs was 94.7%.
Among all other species, the one yielding the highest score was C. baltica, which corresponded to an identity of 98.1% and a HSP coverage of 97.8%. The highest-scoring environmental sequence was “type”:”entrez-nucleotide”,”attrs”:”text”:”GU452686″,”term_id”:”289656897″,”term_text”:”GU452686″GU452686 (‘sediments coast oil polluted Black Sea coastal sediment clone 70SZ2′), which Cilengitide showed an identity of 96.5% and a HSP coverage of 98.1%.
