Draft genome sequences of two novel Paenibacillus isolates from goose and chicken gastrointestinal material. Microbiology Resource Announcements. http://doi.org/10.1128/MRA.00013-20.
Interpretive Summary: Paenibacillus is a genus of biochemically active bacteria that are found in many environments including the intestines of birds. Determining the genome DNA sequence of these organisms will help to understand how they contribute to the intestinal microbial community. Two novel isolates of Paenibacillus were isolated, one from goose feces and another from chicken intestine. Their genomic DNA was purified, sequence determined and after rigorous quality control the data was used for de novo genome assembly. Upon comparison of the genome sequence of the current isolates to other published sequences, the isolates were not found to be members of any previously reported species cluster. Thousands of functional protein coding genes were identified. This data will be useful for further studies to determine the function of these isolates in the intestinal microflora of birds. Such insight may shed light on interplay between intestinal bacteria and help further our efforts to understand how pathogens may establish themselves in the intestines or be excluded.
Technical Abstract: Here, we present the draft genome sequences of two Paenibacillus species strains An7 and USDA918EY isolated from goose feces (Bend, Oregon, USA) and chicken ceca (Pomona,California, USA respectively. These data may assist with analyses of microorganisms associated with free-ranging and commercial avian species.
