    Falsirhodobacter sp. alg1 is an alginate-degrading bacterium, the second species from the nonphototrophic bacterial genus Falsirhodobacter. We report the first draft genome of a bacterium from this genus and point out possible important features related to alginate assimilation and its evolutionary aspects.
