Complete Genome Sequences of Eight Rhizobium Symbionts Associated with Common Bean ( Phaseolus vulgaris)

Genome Announc. 2017 Jul 27;5(30):e00645-17. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00645-17.


We present here the high-quality complete genome sequences of eight strains of Rhizobium-nodulating Phaseolus vulgaris Comparative analyses showed that some of them belonged to different genomic and evolutionary lineages with common symbiotic properties. Two novel symbiotic plasmids (pSyms) with P. vulgaris specificity are reported here.
