Draft Genome Sequence of Rhizoctonia solani Anastomosis Group 1 Subgroup 1A Strain 1802/KB Isolated from Rice

Genome Announc. 2017 Oct 26;5(43):e01188-17. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.01188-17.


Sheath blight, caused by Rhizoctonia solani anastomosis group 1 subgroup 1A (AG1-1A), is one of the most devastating rice diseases worldwide. Here, we report the draft genome sequence of R. solani AG1-1A strain 1802/KB isolated from a popular Malaysian rice variety. To the best of our knowledge, this is the second reported representative genome from AG1-1A.
