Genome Sequence of Xanthomonas Sacchari R1, a Biocontrol Bacterium Isolated From the Rice Seed

J Biotechnol. 2015 Jul 20;206:77-8. doi: 10.1016/j.jbiotec.2015.04.014. Epub 2015 Apr 28.


Xanthomonas sacchari, was first identified as a pathogenic bacterium isolated from diseased sugarcane in Guadeloupe. In this study, R1 was first isolated from rice seed samples from Philippines in 2002. The antagonistic ability against several rice pathogens raises our attention. The genomic feature of this strain was described in this paper. The total genome size of X. sacchari R1 is 5,000,479 bp with 4315 coding sequences (CDS), 59 tRNAs, 2rRNAs and one plasmid.

Keywords: Complete genome sequence; Oryza sativa; Pacbio; Xanthomonas sacchari.
