Fusarium corm rot is the major destructive disease of Crocus sativus, a perennial herb whose stigma forms the commercially important spice “saffron”. In the present study we isolated a native Bacillus strain with antagonistic activity against a Fusarium oxysporum isolate causing the disease. Three fungi, Fusarium oxysporum, F. solani and Penicillium sp.,(More)
Bacillus sp. strain W2 is a plant growth-promoting rhizobacterium isolated from saffron fields of Kashmir, India. Here, we report the draft genome sequence (3.9 Mb) of Bacillus amyloliquefaciens strain W2 having 65 contigs (3, 997, 511 bp), 4,163 coding sequences, and an average 46.45% GC content. Despite the 99% identity of the 16S rRNA gene with that of(More)
In the present century sequencing is to the DNA science, what gel electrophoresis was to it in the last century. From 1977 to 2016 three generation of the sequencing technologies of various types have been developed. Second and third generation sequencing technologies referred commonly to as next generation sequencing technology, has evolved significantly(More)
