Complete Genome Sequences of Brenneria rubrifaciens Strain 6D370 and Brenneria nigrifluens Strain ATCC 13028, Causative Agents of Bark Cankers in Walnut

Microbiol Resour Announc. 2019 Sep 12;8(37):e00597-19. doi: 10.1128/MRA.00597-19.


Brenneria rubrifaciens and Brenneria nigrifluens, respectively, cause deep and shallow bark canker disease in walnut. B. rubrifaciens exhibits quorum sensing-controlled virulence and rubrifacine pigment production. The complete genome sequences of these species will be useful for studying the role of genes regulated by quorum sensing, including pathways mediating pathogenesis.
