Draft genome sequence of a virulent Pectobacterium carotovorum subsp. brasiliense isolate causing soft rot of cucumber.

Abstract

Pectobacterium carotovorum subsp. brasiliense causes soft rot and blackleg diseases on potatoes, ornamentals, and other crops of economic importance. Here, we report a draft genome sequence of a highly virulent P. carotovorum subsp. brasiliense strain, PcbHPI01, isolated from a cucumber in South Africa.
