Since the number of articles describing DNA data have seen a huge increase in the recent years, many journals have developed a new format for such articles. Typically, these are short articles ranging anywhere between 500 to 1500 words, and are published as announcements, reports, or letters.

Here are a few microbiology and genome focused journals that publish short reports or announcements about genomes. However, I would recommend that you check each of these journals yourself before submitting to any of them.
