Members of the Roseobacter group are known for their different ecologically relevant metabolic traits and high abundance in many marine environments. This includes traits like carbon monoxide oxidation, sulfur oxidation, nitrogen oxidation, DMSP demethylation, denitrification, and production of bioactive compounds. Nevertheless, their role in the marine biogeochemical cycles remains to be elucidated. Roseobacter ponti DSM 106830T, also designated strain MM-7T (=KCTC 52469T =NBRC 112431T), is a novel type strain of the Roseobacter group, which was proposed as new Roseobacter species. It was isolated from seawater of the Yellow Sea in South Korea. We report the complete genome sequence of R. ponti DSM 106830T, which belongs to the family Rhodobacteraceae. The genome of R. ponti DSM 106830T comprises a single circular chromosome (3,861,689 bp) with a GC content of 60.52% and an additional circular plasmid (p1) of 100,942 bp with a GC content of 61.51%. The genome encodes 3,812 putative genes, including 3 rRNA, 42 tRNA, 1 tmRNA, and 3 ncRNA. The genome information was used to perform a phylogenetic analysis, which confirmed that the strain represents a new species. Moreover, the genome sequence enabled the investigation of the metabolic capabilities and versatility of R. ponti DSM 106830T. Finally, it provided insight into the high niche adaptation potential of Roseobacter group members.
