Draft genome sequence of the bean-nodulating Sinorhizobium fredii strain GR64

J Bacteriol. 2012 Dec;194(24):6978. doi: 10.1128/JB.01882-12.


Sinorhizobium fredii GR64 is a peculiar strain that is able to effectively nodulate bean but not soybean, the common host of S. fredii. Here we present the draft genome of S. fredii GR64. This information will contribute to a better understanding of the symbiotic rhizobium-plant interaction and of rhizobial evolution.
