Marine actinomycetes (order Actinomycetales) are of interest as a promising source of pharmaceuticals. The genomes of three novel sponge-associated actinomycetes exhibiting antimycobacterial activity, Brevibacterium sp. strain XM4083, Micrococcus sp. strain R8502A1, and Micromonospora sp. strain XM-20-01, were sequenced in an effort to identify compounds responsible for growth-inhibiting activity.
