The ribulose-bisphosphate carboxylase (rbcL) gene sequence data in the molecular data repository has been increasing significantly, over the years with contributions from different parts of the world. The abundance of the gene has enhanced its applications in several ways. Bulk records were obtained from National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) GenBank database using the entrez efetch utility as implemented in the Biopython package version 1.77. Records corresponding to the following keywords "rbcL AND plants [filter] AND biomol_genomic [PROP] AND is _nuccore [filter]" were created. Generated records were cleaned and then further analysed using the code file in the supplementary materials. Country information was obtained by searching reference information for matches to countries present in the pycountry package. Where no match was found, null was returned. This data article contains information about the plant family and species whose rbcL gene sequence has been deposited on the NCBI and regions of the world that has contributed to the rbcL repository growth. This data can be used to analyse the intra and inter family relatedness of plant and compare with existing relationships the molecular characterization of plants, evolutionary relationship studies, inferring biogeography origin of plant. © 2022 Published by Elsevier Inc.
