Two bacteria, Streptomyces albireticuli MDJK11 and S. alboflavus MDJK44, which are potential plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria against pathogenic fungi were isolated from the rhizosphere soil of peony in Shandong, China. Their biological characteristics and complete genome sequences were reported in this study. The total genome size of MDJK11 was only 8.14?Mb with 6,550 protein-coding genes and a high GC content of 72.8?mol%. The MDJK44 genome comprises a 9.62 Mb chromosome with 72.1?mol% GC content, 7,285 protein-coding genes, and two plasmids. Some gene sequences in these two genomes were analyzed to be heterologously obtained by horizontal transfer. Gene or gene cluster candidates responding to secondary metabolites production, antimicrobial activities, and plant growth-promoting capacities were also analyzed in this paper. The genomic information and biological characteristics will facilitate the understanding and application of S. albireticuli and S. alboflavus species as biocontrol agents in future agriculture.
