Keywords: root-nodule bacteria, nitrog en fixation, evolution, lateral gene transfer, integ rative and conjug ative elements, symbiosis, Alphaproteobacteria Mesorhizobium ciceri bv. biserrulae strain WSM1271 T was isolated from root nodules of the pasture legume Biserrula pelecinus g rowing in the Mediterranean basin. Previous studies have shown this aerobic, motile, Gram negative, non-spore-forming rod preferably nodulates B. pelecinus – a legume with many beneficial agronomic attributes for sustainable agriculture in Australia. We describe the genome of Mesorhizobium ciceri bv. biserrulae strain WSM1271 T consisting of a 6,264,489 bp chro-mosome and a 425,539 bp plasmid that together encode 6,470 protein-coding genes and 61 RNA-only encoding genes.
