The draft genome of Thermocrinis jamiesonii GBS1T is 1,315,625 bp in 10 contigs and encodes 1,463 predicted genes. The presence of sox genes and various glycoside hydrolases and the absence of uptake NiFe hydrogenases (hyaB) are consistent with a requirement for thiosulfate and suggest the ability to use carbohydrate polymers.
