Wheat is the major crop in India and like other crops also subjected to influence by microbial communities of the rhizospheric region which are extremely diverse and undoubtedly play a central role in the nutrient cycle, plant productivity and growth promotion. In order to know how changes in the rhizospheric microbial community can make an impact on overall crop function, wheat rhizospheric soil samples from Ghazipur (25.913824 N 83.529715 E) regions of Eastern Uttar Pradesh (Eastern Indogangatic Plain), were collected and analyzed. Full length 16S rRNA gene amplification sequencing was performed to reveal the bacterial community in wheat rhizosphere. A total of 51,909 read were analyzed, out of that only 44,125 reads were classified and 7784 were unclassified using oxford nanopore sequencing and EPI2ME data analysis platform. MinION oxford nanopore sequencing uncovered that dominant phyla were Proteobacteria (68%), followed by firmicutes (13%), bacteroidetes (3%), actinobacteria (3%) and acidobacteria (3%). The data is available at the NCBI - Sequence Read Archive (SRA) with accession number: SRX5275271.
