Purple pigment producing bacterium strains AMJK, AMJM, and AMRM were isolated from sediment in sinan-gun, Korea and their draft genomes were sequenced using Illumina Hiseq 4000 platform. The lengths of AMJK, AMJM, and AMRM genomes were 6,380,747 bp, 6,381,259 bp, and 6,380,870 bp, respectively and G+C contents were 62.82%, 64.15%, and 62.82%, respectively. Comparative analysis of genomic identity showed that three strains were closely related to the group of Janthinobacterium lividum. Functional analysis of AMJK, AMJM, and AMRM genomes showed that all strains harbor genes related to producing violacein (VioABCDE).
