Abstract
AbstractMarine bacterial lineages associated with algal blooms, such as the Roseobacter clade, have been well characterized in ecological and genomic contexts, yet such lineages have rarely been explored in freshwater blooms. This study performed phenotypic and genomic analyses of an alphaproteobacterial lineage ‘Candidatus Phycosocius’ (denoted the CaP clade), one of the few lineages ubiquitously associated with freshwater algal blooms, and described a novel species: ‘Ca. Phycosocius spiralis.’

Abstract
ABSTRACT “ Candidatus Phycosocius bacilliformis” is an alphaproteobacterial ectosymbiont of the hydrocarbon-producing green alga Botryococcus braunii . We sequenced the whole genome of “ Ca. P. bacilliformis” BOTRYCO-2, isolated from a two-membered culture with B. braunii . The genome contains approximately 3.3 Mb, with an average G+C content of 56.91% and 3,125 predicted protei
