- Root-knot nematodes (RKNs) which can infect almost all crops lead to huge economic losses in agriculture around the world. Unavailability of effective and environmentally friendly control of RKNs provides an opportunity to nematicidal bacteria. Fictibacillus phosphorivorans G25-29 is a gram-positive and spore-forming bacterium with nematicidal capability against root-knot nematodes and free-living nematode Caenorhabditis elegans. Here, we report the complete genome of F. phosphorivorans G25-29, containing a circular chromosome and encoding nine potential nematicidal factors which may contribute to its nematicidal activity.
