Question Where to publish WGS annotation and description paper?

Dear Users,

We have sequenced, assembled, annotated, the genome of a sp. nov. bacterium using 454 and Illumina Hybrid Sequencing and submitted it to the NCBI GenBank. We have also annotated COG details. Apart from that, we have performed several wet lab works like whole VITEK Gen2, physiological tests, Transmission Electron Microscopy, MALDI-TOF, Gram Staining etc.

We were actually preparing for submission in Standards in Genomic Sciences (SIGS), but it turned out that the editors require money at the time of submission, and the money is not refunded even if the paper is not accepted , a risk that me and my institution is not willing to take.

So, here we are, with all those work done, time and money spent, paper written, and shelved!!!

Please suggest some other journal which accepts similar papers, maybe little more benchwork but at least accept what we have done so far.

Thanking you for reading so far.

PLOS ONE, or ASM's new Genome Announcements journal.

Thank you nickloman and JackieBadger for your prompt reply.

About the Genome Announcement Journal: They accept genome announcements which is limited to 500 words. Ours is much more data than that, plus wet lab works.

About PLOS ONE: I looked into the journal but could not find any paper similar to ours. My data is a Draft genome sequence with 128 contigs... I guess I will write to the editor.

About BMC Genomics: Same situation, I will write to its editor too.

Your help is much appreciated!
