An actinobacterial strain designated Gordonia sp. MMS17-SY073 (=KCTC 49257) was isolated from a coastal soil of an island, and its complete genome was analyzed. A single contig consisting of 5,962,176 bp with the G + C content of 67.4% was obtained, and the annotation resulted in 5,201 protein-coding genes, 6 rRNA genes and 45 tRNA genes. Strain MMS17-SY073 was closest to the type strain of Gordonia soli based on the 16S rRNA gene sequence comparison, sharing 98.5% sequence similarity. A number of biosynthetic gene clusters for secondary metabolites, non-ribosomal peptide synthetase types in particular, could be identified from the genome.
