Draft Genome Sequence of Rhodococcus sp. Strain 66b


We report here the draft genome sequence and annotation of Rhodococcus sp. strain 66b isolated from the soil of southwest Western Australia. This strain exhibits a range of bioactivities, including plant growth promotion, biosurfactant production, and wax degradation. Whole-genome sequencing was conducted to uncover the underlying mechanisms.
