Draft Genome Sequence of Frankia sp. Strain Thr, a Nitrogen-Fixing Actinobacterium Isolated from the Root Nodules of Casuarina cunninghamiana Grown in Egypt.

Academic Article


  • Nitrogen-fixing actinobacteria of the genus Frankia are symbionts of woody dicotyledonous plants termed actinorhizal plants. We report here a 5.3-Mbp draft genome sequence for Frankia sp. stain Thr, a nitrogen-fixing actinobacterium isolated from root nodules of Casuarina cunninghamiana collected in Egypt.
