Genome sequence of the diazotrophic Gram-positive rhizobacterium Paenibacillus riograndensis SBR5(T)

J Bacteriol. 2011 Nov;193(22):6391-2. doi: 10.1128/JB.06100-11.


Paenibacillus riograndensis SBR5(T), a nitrogen-fixing Gram-positive rhizobacterium isolated from a wheat field in the south of Brazil, has a great potential for agricultural applications due to its plant growth promotion effects. Here we present the draft genome sequence of P. riograndensis SBR5(T). Its 7.37-Mb genome encodes determinants of the diazotrophic lifestyle and plant growth promotion, such as nitrogen fixation, antibiotic resistance, nitrate utilization, and iron uptake.
