Abstract

Over the past few years, mangrove-derived Bacillus sp. have been characterized frequently for their bioactive potential. Bacillus sp. MUM 116 was isolated from mangrove forest in Kuala Selangor which is located on the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia. In order to obtain better understanding of the strain, the genome sequence of MUM 116 was acquired through Illumina MiSeq sequencing platform and yielded 5,720,395 bp along with 165 tRNA and 25 rRNA genes. Based on antiSMASH and RAST annotation, there was one cluster associated with production of bacteriocin. A deeper analysis into the genome sequence of MUM 116 would be essential to exploit the strain for production of bioactive compounds, which could potentially be developed as potent antibacterial agent.
