Permanent Draft Genome Sequence of Frankia sp. Strain Allo2, a Salt-Tolerant Nitrogen-Fixing Actinobacterium Isolated from the Root Nodules of Allocasuarina.

Academic Article


  • Frankia sp. strain Allo2 is a member of Frankia lineage Ib, which is able to reinfect plants of the Casuarinaceae family, and exhibits a high level of salt tolerance compared to other isolates. Here, we report the 5.3-Mbp draft genome sequence of Frankia sp. strain Allo2 with a G+C content of 70.0% and 4,224 candidate protein-encoding genes.
