The extremely halophilic archaeon Halobellus rufus type strain CBA1103T (CECT 8423T and JCM 19434T was isolated from non-purified solar salt and characterized as an agarase producer. The draft genome sequence contains 3852 303 bp with a G + C content of 64.1% and includes genomic information on various carbohydrate-active enzymes. This is the first sequenced genome of the genus Halobellus, and is expected to provide general sequence information for halophilic carbohydrate-active enzymes and opportunities for biotechnological applications of novel halophilic enzymes.
