The draft genome sequencing for Pelagicola sp. DSW4-44 (= KCTC 62762 = KCCM 43261), isolated from deep seawater of East Sea in Korea, was performed using Illumina HiSeq platform. As a result, the draft genome was comprised of a total length of approximately 4.85 Mbp with G + C content of 54.3%, and included a total of 4,566 protein-coding genes, 3 rRNA genes, 48 tRNA genes, 3 non-coding RNA genes, and 67 pseudo genes. In the draft genome, the strain DSW4-44 contained genes involved in the nitrogen metabolism of dissimilatory nitrate reduction to ammonium (DNRA) and denitrification, which were not found other strains in the genus Pelagicola.
