Abstract

SIMOES-ARAUJO, Jean Luiz et al. Draft genome sequence of Bradyrhizobium sp. strain BR 3267, an elite strain recommended for cowpea inoculation in Brazil. Braz. J. Microbiol. [online]. 2016, vol.47, n.4, pp.781-782. ISSN 1517-8382.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.bjm.2016.03.002.

The strain BR 3267 is a nitrogen-fixing symbiotic bacteria isolated from soil of semi-arid area of Brazilian Northeast using cowpea as the trap plant. This strain is used as commercial inoculant for cowpea and presents high efficient in nitrogen fixation as consequence of its adaptation potential to semi-arid conditions. We report here the draft genome sequence of Bradyrhizobium sp. strain BR 3267, an elite bacterium used as inoculant for cowpea. Whole genome sequencing of BR 3267 using Illumina MiSeq sequencing technology has 55 scaffolds with a total genome size of 7,904,309 bp and C+G 63%. Annotation was added by the RAST prokaryotic genome annotation service and has shown 7314 coding sequences and 52 RNA genes.

Keywords : Biological nitrogen fixation; Next generation sequencing; Nodulation; Semi-arid region.
