Rhizobial genomes galore

April 19, 2014

The past year has seen a bonanza for rhizobial genome sequences. Here is a list of the the papers that I am aware of that were published in 2013 or 2014. Apart from the first two, they represent some of the fruits of the genome sequencing that Wayne Reeve persuaded the Joint Genome Institute to carry out. I know that many rhizobium researchers around the world provided strains and DNA for this effort, and there are many more genome sequences in the pipeline but not yet published. Some of these can already be accessed on the JGI web site or in the NCBI database. These genome sequences represent a great resource for rhizobium researchers. They will suggest new experiments – but even those who are not in a position to carry out lab work have the opportunity to use this free information to gain new insights through careful analysis in silico.

Crook, M. B., Mitra, S., Ané, J. M., Sadowsky, M. J., & Gyaneshwar, P. (2013). Complete genome sequence of the Sesbania symbiont and rice growth-promoting endophyte Rhizobium sp. strain IRBG74. Genome announcements, 1(6), e00934-13.

[This is a rhizobium that is actually an Agrobacterium. Yes, I know that some taxonomists would like us to expand Rhizobium to include Agrobacterium, which is presumably why the authors call this Rhizobium, but do not worry – Agrobacterium will be back soon! This strain is definitely in the genus Agrobacterium (Cummings et al. 2009).]
