Abstract

These are the complete bacterial symbiont genome sequences from anglerfish Cryptopsaras couesii (individual CC26) and one individual Melanocetus johnsonii. These data were generated and analyzed by the laboratory of Dr Tory Hendry (Cornell University). The full sequences of two symbiotic bacterial genomes have been submitted to public DDBJ/ENA/GenBank repositories under the accessions CP020660- CP020663 (CC26 Cryptopsaras couesii) and NBYY01000001-NBYY01000039 (Melanocetus johnsonii). The total genome size for each of the symbiont species is about 2-2.6 Mb.

Purpose

To better understand the potential roles and metabolism of bacterial symbionts that produce bioluminescence for two anglerfish species found in Gulf of Mexico aphotic pelagic zones.
