TitleDraft genomic DNA sequence of the multi-resistant sphingomonas sp. strain AntH11 isolated from an Antarctic hypolithAbstractHypoliths are microbial communities that live underneath translucent rocks in desert ecosystems and represent a key refuge niche in the Antarctic Dry Valleys. These cryptic microbial assemblages are crucial as they mediate numerous ecosystem processes. Here, we present the first draft genome of a hypolith isolate belonging to the Î±-proteobacterial class and the genus Sphingomonas. The draft genome of Sphingomonas sp. strain AntH11 shows the capacity of this organism to adapt to the extreme cold and arid conditions encountered in Antarctic desert soils. Our result also suggests that its metabolic versatility and multidrug resistance constitutes an opportunistic advantage in competition with other hypolith-colonizing microorganisms. ©FEMS 2015.AcknowledgementsThe South African National Antarctic Program (SANAP), Antarctica New Zealand, for field and logistics support through a collaboration with Professor Craig Cary, the University of Pretoria DNA Sequencing Facility for sequencing support, and the Centre for High Performance Computing (CHPC, http://www.chpc.ac.za/), an initiative supported by the Department of Science and Technology of South Africa.
