Three hundred and fifty mango soil and root samples were collected from Jazan province south west KSA in order to examine the presence of different bacterial genera distributed in this area. A total of 13 bacterial isolates were identified by 16S rRNA sequencing and using BLAST. The neighbor-joining method was used to produce a Molecular Phylogenetic analysis and a phylogenetic tree was constructed. As a result of this study the following bacteria Bacillus sp. (1), B. firmus (1), B. licheniformis (1), B. subterraneus (2), B. subtilis (1), B. vireti (1), Fictibacillus barbaricus (1), Lysobacter enzymogenes (1), Paenibacillus sp. (1), Paracoccus sp. (1), Streptomyces sp. (1), S. griseorubens(1) were found. Isolated bacteria are significantly important because they regulate soil ecosystem. To the best of our knowledge this is the first report of identified bacterial isolates associated with mango soil samples according to 16S rRNA gene in Jazan province, KSA.
