Interpretive Summary: During the processing of harvested sugarcane for raw sugar, microorganisms are able to consume sugar and make undesirable byproducts, posing challenges to sugar factories. We sequenced the genomes of 17 bacterial strains that were previously isolated from samples collected at Louisiana raw sugar factories. Sequencing of these genomes will help to identify the genes involved in sugarcane juice spoilage that these bacteria possess.
Technical Abstract: We report the draft genomes for 17 bacterial isolates belonging to the genera Gluconobacter, Leuconostoc, and Pantoea that were obtained from Louisiana sugarcane raw sugar factory juice and biofilm samples.
