Genome Sequence of Mushroom Soft-Rot Pathogen Janthinobacterium agaricidamnosum

Genome Announc. 2015 Apr 16;3(2):e00277-15. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00277-15.


Janthinobacterium agaricidamnosum causes soft-rot disease of the cultured button mushroom Agaricus bisporus and is thus responsible for agricultural losses. Here, we present the genome sequence of J. agaricidamnosum DSM 9628. The 5.9-Mb genome harbors several secondary metabolite biosynthesis gene clusters, which renders this neglected bacterium a promising source for genome mining approaches.
