Abstract:
Here we report the draft genome sequence of Nocardiopsis sp. strain TP-A0876, isolated from marine sediment, which produces polyketide-derived pyrones called nocapyrones. The genome contains three polyketide synthase (PKS) gene clusters, one of which was proposed to be responsible for nocapyrone biosynthesis. This genome sequence will facilitate the study of the potential for secondary metabolism in Nocardiopsis strains.
