Paenibacillus mucilaginosus is a critical growth-improving silicate bacterium. Here, we report the complete genome sequence of P. mucilaginosus strain KNP414. This information will provide us with the opportunity to understand its molecular mechanisms and develop more effective utilization of the strain.
Paenibacillus mucilaginosus is a biofertilizer used widely for its P-, K-mineralizing and N2-fixing activities. The phenotypic and genotypic diversities of 27 P. mucilaginosus strains or isolates were investigated. The strains had some shared morphological and biochemical characteristics, yet they displayed some diversities. Colony and capsule size varied… (More)
