Finished Genome Sequences of Xanthomonas Fragariae, the Cause of Bacterial Angular Leaf Spot of Strawberry

Genome Announc. 2016 Nov 10;4(6):e01271-16. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.01271-16.


Xanthomonas fragariae is a foliar pathogen of strawberry that is of significant concern to nursery production of strawberry transplants and field production of strawberry fruit. Long-read sequencing was employed to generate finished genomes for two isolates (each with one chromosome and two plasmids) from symptomatic plants in northern California.
