Genome sequences were annotated for further functional and taxonomical analyses of the respective Bifidobacterium strains. Genetic determinants of probiotic capabilities, including the genes, related to utilization of human milk oligosaccharides and mucin, as well as the genes, encoding bile salt hydrolase were identified.
The genome of B. bifidum VKPM=Ac-1784 has been shown to possess two bacteriocin gene clusters. The dataset expands knowledge on genomic diversity of probiotic strains of Bifidobacterium genus. The dataset is available under PRJNA656137 accession number in NCBI database and under zyv26t6x5r accession number in Mendeley Data repository.
