Draft genome sequence of Raoultella terrigena R1Gly, a diazotrophic endophyte.

Authors: Schicklberger, M and Shapiro, N and Loqué, D and Woyke, T and Chakraborty, R

Raoultella terrigena R1Gly is a diazotrophic endophyte isolated from surface-sterilized roots of Nicotiana tabacum. The whole-genome sequence was obtained to investigate the endophytic characteristics of this organism at the genetic level, as well as to compare this strain with its close relatives. To our knowledge, this is the first genome obtained from the Raoultella terrigena species and only the third genome from the Raoultella genus, after Raoultella ornitholytic and Raoultella planticola. This genome will provide a foundation for further comparative genomic, metagenomic, and functional studies of this genus. Copyright © 2015 Schicklberger et al.
