- We report the complete genome sequence of Corynebacterium casei LMG S-19264T (=DSM 44701T) which was isolated from the surface of an Irish farmhouse smear-ripened cheese. The genome of C. casei LMG S-19264T consists of three replicons: the chromosome (3,113,488bp, 55.69% G+C content), the plasmid pCASE1 (2461bp, 56.77% G+C content) and the plasmid pCASE2 (16,264bp, 55.08% G+C content), encoding a total of 2908 protein coding genes. Analysis of the sequence data revealed a large region of ∼98kb with an average G+C content of ∼65% that was acquired by horizontal gene transfer.
