The metagenome of a microbial community of the sediments from a highly acidic iron-rich puddle at the tailings dump of the Komsomolskaya gold mine in the Kuzbass area, Siberia, Russia, was sequenced. Binning of contigs yielded a near-complete genome of the dominant bacterium, representing a novel deep lineage of Deltaproteobacteria.

We report here the genome sequence of a human chikungunya virus isolate from the ongoing autochthonous outbreak in central Italy. The sequence (East-Central-South African lineage, Indian Ocean sublineage), which is similar to recent sequences from Pakistan and India, shows E1 and E2 signatures of strains whose main mosquito vector is Aedes aegypti, although Aedes albopictus is the vector in Italy.

We report the genome sequences of 14 cluster K mycobacteriophages isolated using Mycobacterium smegmatis mc²155 as host. Four are closely related to subcluster K1 phages, and 10 are members of subcluster K6. The phage genomes span considerable sequence diversity, including multiple types of integrases and integration sites.
