We present the genome of Salinisphaera shabanensis, isolated from a brine-seawater interface and representing a new order within the Gammaproteobacteria.
Its adaptations to physicochemical and nutrient availability
fluctuations include six genes encoding heavy metal-translocating P-type
ATPases and multiple genes involved in iron uptake, siderophore
production, and poly-β-hydroxybutyrate synthesis.
