Kosakonia sacchari sp. nov. is a new species within the new genus Kosakonia, which was included in the genus Enterobacter. K. sacchari is a nitrogen-fixing bacterium named for its association with sugarcane Saccharum officinarum L

K. sacchari bacteria are Gram-negative, aerobic, non-spore-forming, motile rods. Strain SP1 =CGMCC1.12102=LMG 26783 is the type strain of the K. sacchari sp. nov and is able to colonize and fix N2 in association with sugarcane plants, thus promoting plant growth. Here we summarize the features of strain SP1 and describe its complete genome sequence. The genome contains a single chromosome and no plasmids, 4,902,024 nucleotides with 53.7% GC content, 4,460 protein-coding genes and 105 RNA genes including 22 rRNA genes, 82 tRNA genes, and 1 ncRNA gene.
