Jeotgalibacillus alimentarius JY-13(T) (=KCCM 80002(T) = JCM 10872(T)) is a moderate halophile. In 2001, this was the first strain of the newly proposed Jeotgalibacillus genus. The draft genome of J.alimentarius was found to consist of 32 contigs (N50, 315,125bp) with a total size of 3,364,745bp. This genome information will be helpful for studies on pigmentation as well as applications for this bacterium.
