    Abstract
    A novel aerobic marine actinobacterium belonging to the genus Glutamicibacter was isolated from the coral Favia veroni sampled from the Andaman Sea, India. Cells are Gram stain positive and rod shaped. The DNA G+C content was 58.7 mol%. The major quinones were MK-8 and MK-9. The polar lipids were diphosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylglycerol, glycolipid, trimannosyldiacylglycerol, phospholipid and dimannosylglyceride. The peptidoglycan type was A4α. Strain S5-52 T showed a maximum 16S rRNA similarity of 99.36% with Glutamicibacter halophytocola DSM 101718 T. The genome of strain...
