Genome Sequence of Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. conglutinans, the Etiological Agent of Cabbage Fusarium Wilt

Mol Plant Microbe Interact. 2021 Feb;34(2):210-213. doi: 10.1094/MPMI-08-20-0245-A. Epub 2020 Dec 4.


Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. conglutinans is the causal agent of Fusarium wilt of cabbage (Brassica oleracea var. capitata L.), which results in severe yield loss. Here, we report a high-quality genome sequence of a race 1 strain (IVC-1) of F. oxysporum f. sp. conglutinans, which was assembled using a combination of PacBio long-read and Illumina short-read sequences. The assembled IVC-1 genome has a total size of 71.18 Mb, with a contig N50 length of 4.59 Mb, and encodes 23,374 predicted protein-coding genes. The high-quality genome of IVC-1 provides a valuable resource for facilitating our understanding of F. oxysporum f. sp. conglutinans-cabbage interaction.[Formula: see text] Copyright © 2021 The Author(s).
