Panchagavya has traditionally been used in Indian Ayurvedic practices because of its pro-agricultural and medicinal properties. This study presents the draft genome of a new Brevibacillus brevis S1-3 strain isolated from the fermented product Panchagavya. Through whole-genome sequencing, we determined that the genome of B. brevis S1-3 was 6,348,716 base pairs with a GC content of 54.3%. Genome assembly revealed the presence of 6107 protein-coding genes, 186 tRNA genes, and 13 rRNA genes. Genome annotation and analysis identified the genes involved in metabolism and other cellular processes. We also predicted the presence of several gene clusters associated with plant growth promotion, including indole acetic acid (IAA), gibberellic acid, ammonia, and nitrogen. Our study also revealed the genes responsible for the production of secondary metabolites that displayed a significant correlation with antimicrobial activity. Our results provide new insights into the genomic basis of the plant growth-promoting abilities of B. brevis and pave the way for further research in this field.
