A collection of 44 isolates isolated from the epicuticular wax of stems of energy sorghum is available at the Great Lakes Bioenergy Researcher Center, Michigan State University, MI, USA. We enriched bacteria with putative plant-beneficial phenotypes and include information on their phenotypic diversity, taxonomy, and whole-genome sequences.

Data Access

Raw sequencing data are available at the Joint Genome Institute’s GOLD database under Study ID Gs0157305, as well as with the National Institutes of Health Sequence Read Archive (see Table 1). Genome sequencing assembly data have been deposited in the GenBank with accession numbers listed in Table 1. The bacterial collection is available at The Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center at Michigan State University, USA (
