Burkholderia sp. JP2-270, a bacterium with a strong ability to inhibit the growth of Rhizoctonia solani, was isolated from the rhizosphere of rice. The phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene revealed that JP2-270 belonged to Burkholderia cepacia complex. Here, we present the complete genome sequence of Burkholderia sp. JP2-270, which consists of three circular chromosomes (Chr1 3,723,585 bp, Chr2 3,274,969 bp, Chr3 1,483,367 bp) and two plasmids (Plas1 15,126 bp, Plas2 428,263 bp). A total of 8193 protein coding genes were predicted in the genome, including 67 tRNA genes, 18 rRNA genes and 4 ncRNA genes. In addition, mutation analysis of Burkholderia sp. JP2-270 revealed that the gene bysR (DM992_17470), encoding a lysR-type transcriptional regulator, was essential for the antagonistic activity of Burkholderia sp. JP2-270 against R. solani GD118 in vitro and in vivo. Identification of regulatory gene associated with antagonistic activity will contribute to understand the antagonistic mechanism of Burkholderia sp. JP2-270. Copyright © 2018 Elsevier Ltd.
