Draft Genome Sequence of the Xanthomonas cassavae Type Strain CFBP 4642

Genome Announc. 2013 Aug 29;1(4):e00679-13. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00679-13.


We report the draft genome sequence of the Xanthomonas cassavae type strain CFBP 4642, the causal agent of bacterial necrosis on cassava plants. These data will allow the comparison of this nonvascular pathogen with the vascular pathogen Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. manihotis, both infecting the same host, which will facilitate the development of diagnostic tools.
