Abstract

Draft genome sequence of a highly virulent strain of the plant pathogen Dickeya solani, IFB0099.

Abstract

Dickeya solani is an important bacterial pathogen of potato cultivars in Europe. Here, we present the draft genome of D. solani strain IFB0099 isolated from potato in Poland that shows a high level of pectinolytic activity and a high virulence. This genome sequence is 5,094,121 bp and contains 4,365 protein-coding sequences.
