Project description:Here, we report the draft genome sequence of the endophytic Bacillus velezensis strain ZeaDK315Endo16, isolated from DK315 maize from Lyon, France. B. velezensis ZeaDK315Endo16 exhibits a suppressive ability toward Fusarium graminearum, a widely known threat to maize production and quality.
Project description:The genome sequence of the commercial probiotic strain "Bacillus polyfermenticus" GF423 was determined. Comparison of the 4.1-Mb genome sequence revealed Bacillus velezensis FZB42 as its closest relative. Based on the genome sequence, we propose that this probiotic strain be renamed Bacillus velezensis variant polyfermenticus.
Project description:Bacillus velezensis is a heterotypic synonym of B. methylotrophicus, B. amyloliquefaciens subsp. plantarum, and Bacillus oryzicola, and has been used to control plant fungal diseases. In order to fully understand the genetic basis of antimicrobial capacities, we did a complete genome sequencing of the endophytic B. velezensis strain CC09. Genes tightly associated with biocontrol ability, including nonribosomal peptide synthetases, polyketide synthetases, iron acquisition, colonization, and volatile organic compound synthesis were identified in the genome.
Project description:Bacillus velezensis JTYP2 was isolated from the leaves of Echeveria laui in Qingzhou, China, and may control some of the fungal pathogens of the plant. Here, we present the complete genome sequence of B. velezensis JTYP2. Several gene clusters related to its biosynthesis of antimicrobial compounds were predicted.
Project description:Candidate biocontrol agent Bacillus velezensis NWUMFkBS10.5 possesses unique genomic characteristics revealed by antiSMASH analysis and in vitro metabolomic elucidation. Besides its capability to produce antimicrobial lipopeptides, further in silico genome profiling predicted the presence of metabolic pathways for synthesizing antioxidants like lampranthin-2, miraxanthin V, and 2-decarboxybetanidin.
Project description:The data presented in this article are related to the published entitled "Whole-genome sequencing of Bacillus velezensis LS69, a strain with a broad inhibitory spectrum against pathogenic bacteria" (Liu et al., 2017) . Genome analysis revealed B. velezensis LS69 has a good potential for biocontrol and plant growth promotion. This article provides an extended analysis of the genetic islands, core genes and amylolysin loci of B. velezensis LS69.
Project description:Here, we report the complete genome sequence of Bacillus velezensis strain S4, which was isolated from biochar-amended agricultural soil collected in Smyrna, Delaware. The genome is 4.07 Mbp, encodes 3,918 predicted proteins, and has a GC content of 46.4%.
Project description:Bacterial nanocellulose (BNC) is a nanofibrillar polymer that possesses unique characteristics such as high chemical purity, mechanical strength, flexibility, and absorbency. In addition, different bacterial strains can form nanocellulose (NC) in multiple shapes and sizes. This study describes the first report of a marine Bacillus strain that is able to synthesize NC. The strain identified as B. velezensis SMR based on 16S rDNA sequencing, produced highly structured NC, as confirmed by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and Scanning Electron Microscopic Analysis (SEM). In Hestrin-Schramm (HS) medium, B. velezensis SMR produced twice the quantity of BNC in comparison to the reference strain, G. xylinus ATCC 10245. The ability of B. velezensis SMR to produce NC using different industrial waste materials as growth media was tested. Growth in Ulva seaweed extract supported a 2.5-fold increase of NC production by B. velezensis SMR and a threefold increase in NC production by G. xylinus ATCC 10245. As proof of principle for the usability of NC from B. velezensis SMR, we successfully fabricated a BNC-based polyvinyl alcohol hydrogel (BNC-PVA) system, a promising material used in different fields of application such as medicine, food, and agriculture.
Project description:Bacillus velezensis strain E68 is a biosurfactant-producing bacterium isolated from an oil battery near Chauvin, Alberta, Canada. Strain E68 exhibited antimicrobial activity against fungal pathogens and could potentially serve as a biological control agent. Its genome was sequenced and annotated, revealing the presence of multiple lipopeptide biosynthetic gene clusters.
Project description:We report here the closed and near-complete genome sequence and annotation of Bacillus velezensis strain AGVL-005, a bacterium isolated from soybean seeds in Brazil and used for phytopathogen biocontrol.
