Abstract

Acting like mini-factories, microorganisms are a valuable source of natural
bioactive compounds of unique chemical structures. Peribacillus sp. MUM 13 was recovered
from the mangrove forest in Malaysia during a screening program for bioactive microbes.
Whole genome analysis revealed that the genome size of MUM 13 as 4,649,225 bp (with G
+ C content of 40.8 %). Bioinformatic analysis predicted the presence of lassopeptide
biosynthetic gene clusters within the genome of MUM 13, which indicates the bioactive
potential of the strain and calls for further experiments to explore the strain characteristics,
particularly in combatting against pathogenic microbes.
