Rice (Oryza sativa L.) roots selectively recruit a taxonomically defined root microbiome from the surrounding soil, which are essential for plant growth and health. We established comprehensive root bacterial culture collections representing more than 70 percent of bacterial species that were reproducibly detectable in natural communities by culture-independent sequencing.

Here we provide access to the library of sequences from the culture collections and information about the over 1000 bacterial isolates from rice roots.
