A halotolerant endophytic plant growth promoting bacterium Providencia rettgeri MR4 was isolated from roots of Abuliton indicum, a plant has better ability to with stand saline conditions from Kutch, India. Draft genome sequencing of Providencia rettgeri MR4 was carried out in Ion Torrent (PGM), Next generation Sequencer. This bacterium had contained genes responsible for salt tolerance in plant, including phosphate solubilisation, IAA, siderophore production, nitrate reduction, ACC deaminase activities and antagonism against phytopathogenic fungi.
