Complete Genome Sequence of Serratia Fonticola DSM 4576 T, a Potential Plant Growth Promoting Bacterium

J Biotechnol. 2015 Nov 20;214:43-4. doi: 10.1016/j.jbiotec.2015.09.005. Epub 2015 Sep 12.


Here, we present the first complete genome sequence of Serratia fonticola DSM 4576(T), a potential plant growth promoting (PGP) bacterium which confers solubilization of inorganic phosphate, indole-3-acetic acid production, hydrogen cyanideproduction, siderophore production and assimilation of ammonia through the glutamate synthase (GS/GOGAT) pathway. This genome sequence is valuable for functional genomics and ecological studies which are related to PGP and biocontrol activities.

Keywords: Complete genome sequence; Plant growth promoting bacteria; Serratia fonticola.
