Streptomyces griseus IFO 13350 Genome

Streptomyces griseus IFO 13350 is a soil bacterium producing an antituberculosis agent, streptomycin, which is the first aminoglycoside antibiotic discovered more than 60 years ago. The linear chromosome consists of 8,545,929 bp, with an average GC content of 72.2%, predicting 7138 open reading frames, six ribosomal RNA operons (16S-23S-5S), and 66 tRNA genes. It contains extremely long terminal inverted repeats (TIRs) of 132,910 bp each.
