Here, we present the draft genome sequence of a novel carotenoid 2'-isopentenylsaproxanthin producer, Jejuia pallidilutea strain 11shimoA1, isolated from the surface of seaweed in Japan, and the ethyl methanesulfonate-induced pigmentation mutants. This genomic information will help to not only elucidate the 2'-isopentenylsaproxanthin biosynthetic pathway but also understand the evolution of flavobacteria.
