Draft Genome Sequence for Frankia sp. Strain BMG5.11, a Nitrogen-Fixing Bacterium Isolated from Elaeagnus angustifolia.

Academic Article


  • Frankia sp. strain BMG5.11, which was isolated from Elaeagnus angustifolia nodules, is able to infect other actinorhizal plants, including Elaeagnaceae, Rhamnaceae, Colletieae, Gymnostoma, and Myricaceae Here, we report the 11.3-Mbp draft genome sequence of Frankia sp. strain BMG5.11, with a G+C content of 69.9% and 9,926 candidate protein-encoding genes.
