Draft genomes announcement of Vietnamese Xanthomonas euvesicatoria strains causing bacterial spot on pepper

Access Microbiol. 2024 Jan 22;6(1):000741.v3. doi: 10.1099/acmi.0.000741.v3. eCollection 2024.


Xanthomonas euvesicatoria the primary causal agent of bacterial spot of pepper (BSP), poses a significant global challenge, resulting in severe defoliation and yield losses for pepper growers. We present the whole genome sequences of eight X. euvesicatoria strains associated with BSP in Vietnam. These genomes contribute to representation of pepper production regions in the global sample of X. euvesicatoria genomes, enabling the development of precise global disease management strategies.
