© 2017 The Author(s). Paraburkholderiacaballeronis is a plant-associated bacterium. Strain TNe-841Twas isolated from the rhizosphere of tomato (Solanum lycopersicum L. var. lycopersicum) growing in Nepantla Mexico State. Initially this bacterium was found to effectively nodulate Phaseolus vulgarisL. However, from an analysis of the genome of strain TNe-841Tand from repeat inoculation experiments, we found that this strain did not nodulate bean and also lacked nodulation genes, suggesting that the genes were lost. The genome consists of 7,115,141 bp with a G + C content of 67.01%. The sequence includes 6251 protein-coding genes and 87 RNA genes.
