Complete Genome Sequence of Xanthomonas citri subsp. citri Strain Aw12879, a Restricted-Host-Range Citrus Canker-Causing Bacterium

Genome Announc. 2013 May 16;1(3):e00235-13. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00235-13.


Xanthomonas citri subsp. citri causes citrus canker. The Asiatic strain has a broad host range, whereas the Wellington variant has a restricted host range. Here, we present the complete genome of X. citri subsp. citri strain A(W)12879. This study lays the foundation to further characterize the mechanisms for virulence and host range of X. citri.
