Abstract

Here we report draft-quality genome sequences for pathotype strains of eight plant-pathogenic bacterial pathovars: Xanthomonas campestris pv. asclepiadis, X. campestris pv. cannae, X. campestris pv. esculenti, X. campestris pv. nigromaculans, X. campestris pv. parthenii, X. campestris pv. phormiicola, X. campestris pv. zinniae and X. dyei pv. eucalypti (= X. campestris pv. eucalypti). We also sequenced the type strain of species X. melonis and the unclassified Xanthomonas strain NCPPB 1067. These data will be useful for phylogenomic and taxonomic studies, filling some important gaps in sequence coverage of Xanthomonas phylogenetic diversity. We include representatives of previously under-sequenced pathovars and species-level clades. Furthermore, these genome sequences may be useful in elucidating the molecular basis for important phenotypes such as biosynthesis of coronatine-related toxins and degradation of fungal toxin cercosporin.
