Interpretive Summary: Lactic acid bacteria (LAB) are an important group of microorganisms that are used in a number of fermented food applications, such as making cheese, yogurt, sauerkraut, and sourdough bread. The diversity of LAB associated with these fermentations is usually variable depending on the geographical location. In this study, we identified and sequenced the genomes of several different LAB that were found in traditional Turkish sourdoughs. Several of these strains were determined to be quite unique and found to have potential uses in the food and biotechnology industry.

Technical Abstract: A high level of variation in microflora can be observed in lactic acid bacteria (LAB) profiles of sourdoughs. Here, we present draft genome sequences of Lactobacillus reuteri E81, L. reuteri LR5A, L. rhamnosus LR2, L. plantarum PFC-311 and a novel Lactobacillus sp. PFC-70 isolated from traditional Turkish backslopped wheat sourdoughs.
