Genome Announc. 2018 May 17;6(20):e00177-18. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00177-18.


Dickeya fangzhongdai DSM 101947T was isolated from pear trees (Pyrus pyrifolia) in Zhejiang Province, China, and is the causal agent of bleeding canker, a devastating disease of pear trees. Here, we provide the complete genome sequence of this bacterium, which has a 5,027,163-bp-long genome, including 4,375 protein-coding genes and 100 RNA genes. This strain possesses a number of genes encoding virulence factors of pathogens.
