Project description:Brevibacillus brevis strain FJAT-0809-GLX had significant inhibition on many plant and animal pathogens. The draft genome sequence of B. brevis FJAT-0809-GLX is 6 Mb in size and consists of 5,677 genes (protein-coding sequences [CDS]), with an average length of 933 bp and a G+C content of 47.30%. Compared with the published B. brevis strain NBRC 100599, 618 specific genes were identified in the strain FJAT-0809-GLX.
Project description:Brevibacillus brevis X23 is an appropriate biocontrol agent against bacterial wilt caused by Ralstonia solanacearum. We report herein the draft genome sequence (6,566,879 bp) and a circular plasmid (6,600 bp) of B. brevis X23, data which may be helpful for mining the antagonistic activity against R. solanacearum.
Project description:The Brevibacillus brevis HK544 strain, which was isolated from soil, exhibited antimicrobial activity against plant pathogens such as Botrytis cinerea, Phytophthora infestans, and Erwinia amylovora. Here, we report the draft genome sequence of the B. brevis HK544 strain, which consists of one circular chromosome of 6,486,246 bp with a GC content of 47.3%.
Project description:Brevibacillus brevis DZQ7 is a plant growth-promoting rhizobacterium (PGPR) isolated from tobacco rhizosphere. Here, we report the draft genome sequence of B. brevis DZQ7. Several functional genes related to antimicrobial activity were identified in the genome.
Project description:We report the 5.18-Mb genome sequence of Brevibacillus laterosporus strain GI-9, isolated from a subsurface soil sample during a screen for novel strains producing antimicrobial compounds. The draft genome of this strain will aid in biotechnological exploitation and comparative genomics of Brevibacillus laterosporus strains.
Project description:The present investigation was undertaken to isolate, screen and evaluate a selected promising PGPR Brevibacillus brevis on cotton crop. Out of 156 bacterial isolates one of the most promising isolate was analyzed for the various PGP traits. A seed germination analysis was conducted with cotton seeds to evaluate the potential of the isolate to promote plant growth. The bacterial isolate was checked for its growth and survival at high temperatures. The isolate was also analyzed for the PGP traits exhibited after the heat treatment. To identify the isolate morphological, biochemical and molecular characterization was performed. The isolate was found positive for many of the PGP attributes like IAA, ARA, anti-fungal activity and ammonia production. Effect of seed bacterization on various plant growth parameters was used as an indicator. The isolate showed significant growth and exhibited various PGP traits at high temperature making it suitable as an inoculant for cotton crop. Isolate was identified as Brevibacillus brevis [SVC(II)14] based on phenotypic as well as genotypic attributes and after conducting this research we propose that the B. brevis which is reported for the first time for its PGP potential in cotton, exerts its beneficial effects on cotton crop through combined modes of actions.
