Near-Complete Genome Sequence of Ralstonia solanacearum T523, a Phylotype I Tomato Phytopathogen Isolated from the Philippines

Microbiol Resour Announc. 2018 Sep 27;7(12):e01048-18. doi: 10.1128/MRA.01048-18. eCollection 2018 Sep.


Ralstonia solanacearum strain T523 is the major phytopathogen causing tomato bacterial wilt in the Philippines. Here, we report the complete chromosome and draft megaplasmid genomes with predicted gene inventories supporting rhizosphere processes, extensive plant virulence effectors, and the production of bioactive signaling metabolites, such as ralstonin, micacocidin, and homoserine lactone.
