Root nodule bacteria of Sinorhizobium meliloti species live in a symbiotic relationship with alfalfa plants. We report here the draft genome sequence of S. meliloti strain AK170, recovered from nodules of Medicago orthoceras (Kar. & Kir.) growing in an area impacted by salinization.
Sinorhizobium meliloti is a Gram-negative bacterium which fixes atmospheric nitrogen in symbiosis with Medicago spp. We report the draft genome sequence of S. meliloti strain CXM1-105, associated with nodules of Medicago sativa subsp. varia (Martyn) Arcang.
