Genome Sequence of the Atypical Symbiotic Frankia R43 Strain, a Nitrogen-Fixing and Hydrogen-Producing Actinobacterium

Genome Announc. 2015 Nov 25;3(6):e01387-15. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.01387-15.


Frankia strain R43 is a nitrogen-fixing and hydrogen-producing symbiotic actinobacterium that was isolated from nodules of Casuarina cunninghamiana but infects only Elaeagnaceae. This communication reports the genome of the strain R43 and provides insights into the microbe genomics and physiological potentials.
